Problem: We allow the past to determine the future.
Solution: Decide ahead of time what you need to do.
[Daniel’s new name probably meant], “Bel, protect his life!” Hananiah was called “Shadrach,” most likely signifying “command of Aku,” the moon god. Mishael received the name “Meshach,” which seems to represent “who is what Aku is?” being the pagan equivalent to the Hebrew Mishael, “who is what God is?” Azariah’s name was changed to Abednego, “servant of Nebo. –Archer, Daniel
“…according to Plato, ‘the education of Persian youths began in their 14th year,’ and it is reasonable to assume that the Babylonians commenced the training of young people at about the same age as the Persians. Daniel then would likely have been about fourteen or fifteen years of age when he was taken into captivity and began his training. Nebuchadnezzar wanted boys at a ‘teachable age’23 so they would be able and willing to learn new things." –Daniel Montgomery
