It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. The passage from the Bible for today is the first chapter of Daniel. A minute ago the pastor was talking about verse two. It tells about things from the Jewish temple in Jerusalem being taken to Babylonia and put into the temple for their gods. This example of things lost in captivity has me thinking now about the movie Things We Lost in the Fire. Things lost in national conquest or in a garage fire are “things” and Daniel models the truth that values, character, convictions, and relationships have greater substance than things.
