Then Daniel went to his house and made the thing known to Hanniah, Mishael and Azariah, his companions – Daniel 2:17
Excellence breeds excellence just like light begets light. Belonging to a network of companions of excellence gives you the fighting chance to display the traits of excellence. The Bible says He that works with wise men shall be wise but the companion of fools shall be destroyed (Prov. 13:20). Therefore, it is rewarding to belong to the company of personalities whose pursuit is excellence.
The companions of excellence raise their sights and channel their efforts towards the realization of their goals. They are purpose-driven and are relentless in fighting the good fight of faith. Daniel and his companions were a typical example of companions of excellence. Together with the other wise men in the palace of King Nebuchadnezzar, they grappled with the challenge of telling the dream dreamt by king and its interpretation. The challenge erupted upon the king’s request. It was a real tall order that boggled the minds of all the wise men in the land.
However, Daniel and his companions became united and put up a bold front to meet the king’s request. They diligently enquired from the Lord to know the dream and its interpretation until there was a revelation. Their ability to meet the demand of the king set them on the pedestal of excellence above the other wise men in the king’s palace. I pray the Lord enlighten your eyes and prepare your heart to connect and associate with the company that will fan the spirit of excellence in your life to flame in Jesus name.
