Introduction: There are really two main points that we need to understand from Daniel 6 (and neither one of them have anything to do with talking vegetables).
I. The Abundant Limitations of Man (vv. 1-18 )
a. the plan of the king (vv. 1-3)
b. the plot of the politicians (vv. 4-9)
c. the reaction of Daniel (v. 10)
d. the futility of Darius (vv.11-18 )
II. The Ultimate Supremacy of God (vv. 19ff )
a. the vindication of Daniel (vv. 19-23)
b. the punishment of the politicians (v. 24)
c. the acknowledgement of the true King (vv. 25-27)
Conclusion (v. 28):
Daniel prospered by choosing to follow the right King.
