Deciding beforehand will be very helpful if the actual situation arises.   Daniel, in the Old Testament, was taken captive by the Babylonians.  It was the Babylonian king’s plan to put the brightest of the young men he had captured on a special, high protein diet.  Daniel was one of these young men, but he had predetermined that he would not eat the king’s special diet.  Not because he was rebellious, but because it was against the instructions he had received from the Scriptures about what to eat and what not to eat.  God blessed Daniel’s decision.  What things should you predetermine in your heart that you must do, or must not do?
