Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.—Daniel 6:5.
WHAT a testimony from his bitterest enemies! Would that it could be said of all of us! He had never taken a bribe, he had never been connected with a “ring.” Ah, how his name shines! He had commenced to shine in his early manhood, and he shone right along. Now he is an old man, an old statesman, and yet this is their testimony.
Character is worth more than money. Character is worth more than anything else in the wide world. I would rather in my old age have such a character as that which Daniel’s enemies gave him than have raised over my dead body a monument of gold reaching from earth to sky.
