Today we read the last chapter of the second letter of the Apostle Peter and the sixth chapter of Daniel.
2 Peter 3. We live in the last days. God’s promise is not slack. There is coming a Day of the Lord, so be steadfast.
Daniel 6. Time passed. Daniel was by then about 80 years old. He was still praying as he always did, three times a day but not to King Darius, and for that he was thrown into the lions’ den. God sent his angel to protect Daniel, so the next morning he was rescued unharmed, but for his accusers, thrown into the same den after Daniel came out, it turned out the lions were really hungry.
