Daniel met God, and to him, it was a life-changing moment. The Lord did not wish to make him poor or homeless. He only wanted him not to pride himself on his goodness and to follow His way.
Our relationship with God starts with love. The Lord went to the Cross for our sake, so what can we do for Him? The best we can do is rejoice at seeing Him like little children do when they see their mother
