Speaker: Pastor Dennis Sallas


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.  At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so.  They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. (Daniel 6:3-4)


Don’t be vulnerable.    Vulnerable:  affected by a specific influence. Temptation-political pressure.  Have a voice.   (Daniel 1:8)
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:….a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak.  (Ecclesiastes 3:1,7)

Don’t be one sided.  One sided:  favoring one side.  Be open.  (Proverbs. 1:5)
But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.  (Titus 3:9)

Don’t be temporal.  Temporal:  lasting only for a time.  Be tough.   (Hebrews. 13:8)
The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.  (Matthew. 7:25)

Don’t be easy going.  Easy going:  dealing with things in a relaxed unworried manner, not strict about things, lenient, lackadaisical.  Be earnest.   (Joshua 24:15)

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written:  Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”  (Matthew 4:10)

Jesus is my candidate of choice:  But I must pray for those that are in authority. (1 Timothy.2:2)
