Daniel 1:5 And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king's meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.
Daniel 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

These four outstanding examples to us all took great pleasure in pleasing God. Wouldn't our lives be more fulfilled if we took as much pleasure in pleasing God as we do in pleasing others and ourselves?
We should take pleasure in worship. Some do, while others seem to get little pleasure from it. We should take pleasure in laboring for the Lord by witnessing. When we can reach a spiritual level where we take pleasure in pleasing Him, we can then enjoy the abundant life that Jesus came to give us.
