No Fear

No Fear

Our boys are facing the wrath of the king who has erected a ninety ft. image of gold  to be worshipped by all of his chief officials (except Daniel, who is missing from this scene) or be cast immediately into a burning fiery furnace. You were to show your worship by bowing down in the plain of Dura when the music stopped playing.  Since Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego , as they were now known, did not bow, they were swiftly brought before the sputtering, furious king. He could not conceive that they would choose to be burnt up, so he was willing to give them another chance.  Their answer is classic and faith-stirring: “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter…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 that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”  Seven times hotter was the command that spewed forth, which happened to burn up the mighty men that the king appointed to bind and throw Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego into the midst of the exceedingly hot furnace.  Read the exciting conclusion in Daniel 3.

You might have some “flames” left-over from the Burning Bush lesson…if not, cut some out of tissue paper to glue around the furnace on your worksheet. This project is made to “stand-up” on a desk etc.
