Re:Verse reading–Daniel 3:1-2, 8-18, 25-29 (day three)
“But if not…” It was no game changer for the three Hebrews that God might not save them from the hand of Nebuchadnezzar. They had no idea what God would do at that moment, and frankly, they didn’t care. Babylon hadn’t fooled them into believing it was eternal, so they knew it wasn’t really a threat. What they did believe was that there was an everlasting kingdom coming that would make Babylon look like an also-ran. And that‘s where they wanted to live. The apostle Paul said that this world in its present form is passing away. Why are you afraid of something that won’t even last?
