SERENITY

A Familiar picture which one often sees is that of Daniel in the lions' den. Though standing before the ravenous beasts, Daniel is in an attitude which denotes serenity. His noble face is turned toward the light; he apparently has no fear of the lions, which are crowded behind him, but not approaching him. How great must have been his reliance on God and how firm the faith in his immutable safety!

Daniel spent most of his life in Babylonian captivity. He lived at a time of general unrest, when violence and wars were common and frequent occurrences. Looking at this picture of Daniel, one may wonder how he attained such perfect poise in face of what seemed to indicate imminent destruction.
