Can you STAND the heat?

But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?” Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.  But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”(Daniel 3:15-18)
Just one question this morning CHRISTian: Can you STAND the heat? 

Daniel's young friends were faced with a heated decision: follow the law of the land or STAND for their faith . . . . their God. We live in a challenging world. Young and not-so-young, we all face peer pressures, political correctness, social acceptance, and cultural and historical practices and traditions. When faced with these choices and biblical values, where do we STAND . . . or do we crumble?

I will leave it at that and have us ponder this thought . . . . What are we leaving to our children?
