Daniel 3:16-18

Yesterday in Sunday School, our lesson was on Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, so I thought I'd take a scripture from that lesson today. This is the third chapter of Daniel.
16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.

17 If it be so, our God and Goddess whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and They will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.

18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
I like this because we do not always think about our Heavenly Mother as someone who "delivers" us, but as a goddess, She does, of course, have that power.
