Life-Changing Decisions: Start

Sunday July 18th, 2021

Pastor Jack Mannschreck

Every story has a beginning, middle, and end. Our scripture from Daniel tells of Daniel’s success in being a trusted leader in Babylonia. Although an exiled follower of Yahweh, King Darius trusted Daniel to be one of three leaders over the 120 satraps (governors) of Babylonia. Then jealousy arises among some of the satraps and they conspired to trip Daniel up using his faith. But Daniel had begun a practice that sustained him not only through his rise to leadership but through his time of trial in the Lion’s Den. We don’t know when he started this practice from scriptural evidence, but we know it had a beginning. What beginnings do you need to tend to in order to achieve the end you wish for? What habits do you need to start? Every story has a beginning, middle, and end; don’t ignore the small beginnings that can lead to your great story!
