Daily Words of Encouragement

Our Verse of Today (14/11/2017)
“In those days Israel had no king, everyone did as they saw fit.” (Judge 21: 25)
The Title of Our Today’s Topic: Everyone Did As They Saw Fit
The event of our verse of today took place during the times of the community leaders of Israel who were called Judges.
From our verse of today we can learn these very important and valuable points:
1. During those times there wasn’t any clear system of governance in the land of Israel because the Israelites didn’t experience the system of kingship yet but they were ruled by Judges in disorderly manner.
2. Because of the absence of permanent system of governance during those times, the Israelites had experienced life of; immorality, worshiping of false gods and total disobedience to God’s law.
3. As a result of the negative life of disobedience to God’s law, the Israelites had experienced God’s anger in form of different aspects such as; famine, diseases, colonialism and enslavement by the other nations repeatedly for centuries.
My dear fellow Christians in general and Churches’ leaders in particular, special those who live in countries that the majority of their governments’ officials are Christians, let us do our level best spiritually and practically in order to help our governments to perform their duties and responsibilities in accordance to God’s will so that we can enjoy His blessings instead of living against His will and facing His curses.
