Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego!

My friend, Scott Shadrach, passed this story my way:

Crazy Story! I called Dell technical support this afternoon to resolve an audio driver issue. The support rep identified himself as Meshach. I asked him to repeat his name. He repeated, “Meshach.”

I revealed to him my last name “Shadrach.” He immediately connected the dots about the Old Testament story of Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego from Daniel chapter 3.

He said, “You want to hear something funny? My cousin’s name is Shadrach Scott.”  I said, “That’s crazy.”  I then said, “Wouldn’t it be great if we could find someone with the name Abednego?”

He said, “You want to hear something even funnier? Shadrach Scott’s brother, my other cousin, is named Abednego Scott.”

Well, there you have it. Just another average day in the life of a boy named Shadrach.
