Theme: ''Standing tall as all around are willfully crumbling''

Introduction:

The definition of integrity is ''the quality of being honest and fair'' that is the simplest definition. It also means ''a firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values''. Integrity implies trustworthiness, incorruptibility to a degree that one is incapable of being false to a trust, responsibility, or a pledge. It is linked to ''probity'' which means ''the quality of a person who is completely honest''.

In this book we continually see the lack of integrity by the feeble masses and the loyal integrity of the four men. In the book of Daniel we see four main themes throughout the book:

1. Defiant Decisions
2. Daunting Danger
3. Dynamic Dedication
4. Dramatic Deliverance

In the book of Daniel we see decrees, defiance, danger, dedication, and ultimately defiance over and over again. Life is about making decisions, most of us will never make a decision pertaining to our being executed but we do make decisions that affect our integrity and our loyalty.
