Conditions For Choosing A King
Right from the time God called Abraham, He had been in charge of the nation of Israel. God Himself decided to be the King of Israel unlike other nations but He knew a time would come when Israel would decide to be like other nations. So, in order for them to choose rightly, God gave them the conditions that Israel’s kings must meet. This was to prevent Israel, God’s chosen people, from being led away from the King of kings and the Lord of lords. God was to choose the king, the king must be an Israelite, and he shall not be greedy, he shall not be one who will lead people away from God, he shall not multiply wives for himself and above all, he shall have a copy of the word of God. He shall study, meditate and do according to its content. This is to enable him please God in all he does. When God wants a man to succeed, He makes His word available to guide him. In making choices in matters that affect your life, what conditions come to play?
