Bottom Line: You talk by the way you walk.
In Daniel chapter 6, the Babylonians, who were the rulers when we last saw Daniel, have been taken over by the Persians. Daniel has faithfully served God, won the favor of a king, and now that kingdom is taken over by an entirely new empire. But like the king of Babylon, the king of Persia notices Daniel too:
Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom (Daniel 6:3 NIV).
It wasn’t so much about what Daniel said. It was about what Daniel did.
In fact, in one translation, it says that God gave Daniel a Spirit of Excellence. Meaning, that he was not only a sharp individual, but God blessed him in his efforts to do well at his job. What a great example that we can all look to for our own lives, whether that is our school work, paying job, or the time we give to a cause or a program.
