Regal Responsibility

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.

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.
