Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire.
So as you may see in Daniel and his companions, that would rather choose to burn, and be cast to the lions than they would bow to the idol which Nebuchadnezzar had set up. When this 'slight offense', in the world's account, and a hot fiery furnace stood in competition, that they must either fall into sin, or be cast into the fiery furnace such was their tenderness of the honor and glory of God, and their hatred and indignation against sin, that they would rather burn than sin!Thomas Brooks
