Just off the heels of an election of our President, it's interesting to read the instructions the Lord gave to the Israelites just before entering their promised land. He knew that one day they would long to be like other nations. He knew their eyes would wander away from Him as King and look to the leadership of man.
So He asked the they be certain to appoint a king the Lord chooses... a leader with a heart for Him. And these are the other requirements of their choosing such a man.
Oh that we would have a leader as such.
Oh that we could lead our lives as such.
What if we had our hearts set on not acquiring so much for ourselves, and took the time to write out the Word of God... observing all His instructions? Then our hearts will not be exalted above others and we would not turn to the right or left. Then our children... and our children's children would also let Him rule in their hearts.
