Today we read the last chapter of second 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 has passed. Daniel is by now about 80 years old. He is still praying as he always did, and for that he is thrown into the lions’ den. God sent his angel to protect Daniel, so he was rescued unharmed, but for his accusers, thrown into the same den after Daniel came out, in turned out the lions were really hungry.
