An Excellent Spirit

Passage: Daniel 6:1-16

The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 141. Daniel was chosen to head up the newly formed government of Medo-Persia because he had an "excellent spirit". The same excellent spirit, his consistent quality of character would also lead to his being caught in a trap laid by jealous men. Is our character so wrapped up in the Lord that someone would be able to predict our reaction to a dillemma? Or are we so compromised in our faith that we can be controlled and extorted by pride or secrecy in our lives?
