In Those Days There Was No King In IsraelWritten by Will Schmidt
Judg 21:25 In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.
The last few chapters of Judges are pretty horiffic. From rape, to slaughtering to 600 forced marriages (to save the Benjaminites from extinction) it seems the verse which is repeated to explain such behaviour is that “…there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”
The question I would like to put forward is this; Is there a king in our lives? Or are we just doing what is right in our own eyes? I regretto say that there are definitely times in my life where Christ is not king in my life, and as such I am prone to doing what is right in my own eyes instead of what is right in God’s eyes.
Let us all live in obedience to the King, and let is flee from dong that which is right in our own eyes.
