Doing what is right
And everyone did what was right in their own eyes. It was the end of an era, the period of the judges had finished and the people were without a leader, the standard by which they measured their actions was their own eyes, their own heart their own desires. Which is fine as long as the eyes and the mind are redeemed. But From my own experience I constantly have to be drawn back to the standard that God sets, not in a legalistic way, but knowing His plumb line is the constant, not the world, not even the people around me.
