While we aren't part of a monarchy (depending on where you are reading this) a need to lead positively is still present. If we fail to positively guide our families, careers, churches, and communities we are refusing to create a legacy that will lead to success and we are setting them up for potential destruction.

Several times in the book of Judges it states that the people had no king so they did as they saw fit. It's not a compliment to their ability to practice self-discipline, but more of an indictment on their lack of restraint. Not only does this reveal a selfish character trait, it highlights our own need for godly leadership. Without it people make foolish, short-sighted decisions that cause personal harm and collateral damage to others--sometimes irreparably.
