Teen Titans Go! according to Cartoon Network is your new favorite show. Oddly enough it has become one of my favorite shows. It’s humor is filled with double entendre that is slap stick enough for the kids but funny to children of the 80s.
In Season 2, Episode 16 , “Vegetables”, we find that Beast Boy gets the Teen Titans to join him in being a vegetarian. They humorously get into the best shapes and able to take down the bad guys in the episode with ease. Well then it takes an odd turn for the worst when they turn green and started to become a minion of a giant carrot name Vegetor.
This show can get pretty wild sometimes but it did remind me of the events from the book of Daniel.
In the book of Daniel we start with Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon coming to Jerusalem and taking it over by force. (Daniel 1:1) We later read that he desires to build up his court. Specifically he wanted:
Daniel 1:4 – young men without any physical defect, handsome,showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand, and qualified to serve in the king’s palace. He was to teach them the language and literature of the Babylonians
From the tribe of Judah four men were chosen: Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah.(Daniel 1:6) If we read a little further we learn that the King had a diet for his servants that went against the food that Daniel and company would normally eat. Daniel said that he didn’t want to “defile himself with the royal food and wine.” (Daniel 1:8) God caused the official to show compassion and favor towards Daniel but there was fear of the king would have his head if Daniel and kin did not look as healthy as the other soldiers. (Daniel 1:9-10)
Now this is where the “Daniel Fast” comes in. Let’s read the scripture.
Daniel 1:11 – 16
