Faith and Courage: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego FHE Lesson

NOTE:  If you're looking for our family blog, go here.  This blog is now 100% FHE lessons and parenting topics.  :)

Another note:  I will probably be a little more sporadic in posting these lessons over the next few weeks during the holiday season.  I'll post what I can, but I anticipate not being able to do so every Monday.  

  I love this story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and their faithfulness and courage while their lives were in mortal danger.  I think that it's important for kids to know that most likely they will never be placed in a life or death situation in defending their faith, but that the spiritual battles we face every day are every bit as dangerous to our eternal lives as a fiery furnace would be to our mortal lives. 

I also find it very interesting to ponder on the story of Abinadi in relation to this story.  They were both faced with very similar trials of their faith, but each had a very different outcome. It may be a fascinating discussion for older kids to talk about the differences, emphasizing that  Abinadi was no less faithful than Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, but that the Lord simply had a different overarching plan in place.

PS For optimal printing performance, it is best to create a free account with and download the PDF file before printing. As always, feel free to email me at if you are having troubles viewing or printing these lessons. I also love to hear your feedback and ideas for future lesson topics. 

It has been brought to my attention that some of my older lessons have been moved into the Scribd archives, which means that you have to pay a fee to download them.  The fee is nominal ($5 to download as many lessons as you want in 24-hours), but if you'd like me to send one or two of them to you as an email file let me know.  Unfortunately, due to my slow internet connection (30+ minutes to upload each lesson), I would not be able to email more than one or two lessons to you, but I'd be happy to do it if you let me know.
