FAVOR

Faith as a foundation – Faith is a base to build upon.

Attuning to God’s will – Daniel asked and found what the will of God is.

Venture that validates – Daniel acted on his faith by making a decision, a commitment

Obedience – Once he decided he had to act on that decision to be faithful.

Reliance of righteousness – Once begun Daniel continued until there was a positive outcome.

Exemplary story – In 1936 Jesse Owens, the grandson of a slave, won an Olympic gold medal in Munich, Germany.  Adolph Hitler was noticeably absent from the ceremony.  This intentional slight did not discourage Jesse Owens from being a winner with favor.
