God warned kings and rulers against pride as well as against greed. He knew that it is the “fear of the Lord” which is the beginning of wisdom.” The word of God would be the rulers’ only hope to reign in righteousness.
Deuteronomy 17: 18-20
“Now it shall come about when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this law on a scroll in the presence of the Levitical priests. It shall be with him and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, by carefully observing all the words of this law and these statutes, that his heart may not be lifted up above his countrymen and that he may not turn aside from the commandment, to the right or the left, so that he and his sons may continue long in his kingdom in the midst of Israel.
PRAY FOR ISRAEL’S GOVERNMENT TO RULE IN THE FEAR OF GOD AND NOT IN THE FEAR OF MAN.
