Daniel's reward

Good morning sisters and brothers,
Today's reading is a short one to follow up on yesterday's long reading. Daniel revealed the mystery of the king's dream to him and the King rewards him. As we know, prophets are not always appreciated for their wisdom. This king will prove fickle, but for the moment, the thing to note is that God makes Daniel thrive in exile.

God bless,


Daniel 2:46-49
46Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell on his face, worshiped Daniel, and commanded that a grain offering and incense be offered to him. 47The king said to Daniel, “Truly, your God is God of gods and Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you have been able to reveal this mystery!” 48Then the king promoted Daniel, gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon and chief prefect over all the wise men of Babylon. 49Daniel made a request of the king, and he appointed Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego over the affairs of the province of Babylon. But Daniel remained at the king’s court.
