Definition: TIME-- "the measured or measurable period during which an action, process, or condition exists or continues."
Question: What will you use your TIME on?
The Priority of a Quiet Time: Daniel 6
1. SPENDING TIME WITH GOD DEVELOPS GODLY CHARACTERISTICS! Vs. 3 "Daniel distinguished himself above the administrators and satraps because he had an extraordinary spirit." (HCSB)
John 15:5 "Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing." (NLT)
Daniel made a choice to be faithful to the Lord despite the consequences.
Insulated by God's grace!
Charles Spurgeon: "It is easier to find 10 men who will fight for the Bible than to find 1 who will read the Bible diligently!"

Habitually spending time with God!
Vs. 10 "And three times a day he got down on his knees, prayed, and gave thanks to his God, just as he had done before." (HCSB)
Spiritual habits develop spiritual character!
Fiercely spending time with God!
Vs. 11 "Then these men went as a group and found Daniel petitioning and imploring his God." (HCSB)
