When you have overcome one temptation, you must be ready to enter the lists with another. As distrust, in some sense, is the mother of safety, so security is the gate of danger. A man had need to fear this most of all, that he fears not at all.
Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895, p. 532)
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
