From the “All Hands on Deck” resource for parents written by Brittany Sky:

“King Nebuchadnezzar made a gold statue and decreed that at the sound of music everyone must bow down and worship the gold statue. Anyone not bowing down to the statue would be thrown into a fiery furnace. As Jews, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego followed God’s laws. They knew they were to only worship God. Therefore, they refused to bow down before the statue. When King Nebuchadnezzar finds out about their refusal, he gives them one final opportunity to bow down, but they refuse. The response of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is interesting. They essentially tell the king, “If our God is able to save us, God will save us. But even if God doesn’t save us, we will never bow down to your statue.” What an act of courage! Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego believe in God so much they are willing to risk dying in the fiery furnace.”
