RCL Daily Devotion for Thursday, March 21, 2019
RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).
Sometimes a biblical text is so good on its own, I am at a loss as what to write in a daily devotion. Today’s reading is one such example. It’s a great story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and their appointment with a nice and toasty oven.
Here’s a great rendition from my all-time favorite singer Johnny Cash. The song’s called “The Fourth Man.” (And gosh, YouTube is just. so. great.)
The thing that is amazing to me about this story is not so much the fantastical things that happen in it, it’s that those who were unwilling to bend their ways, even on pain of death, because they meant that much to them.
We can only hope to live in their same conviction, no?
