“This is how a king will reign over you,” Samuel said. “The king will draft your sons and assign them to his chariots and his charioteers, making them run before his chariots.”
1 Samuel 8:11 NLT

Too often, I put something over my relationship with God. Other things become more important and take precedence over him. Instead of seeking his will, I follow my own. Instead of doing what he wants, I do what I want. Instead of letting him be King and letting him rule over me, I let or make something else rule me. It’s crazy! I know that my Lord rules well, rules fairly and rules kindly and yet I go and choose a tyrant to run and ruin my life!

Good King, bad king? Fairly straightforward decision process there, eh?
