In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit. (Judges 21:25.)
through the establishment of a kingdom for God’s people:
A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart. (Proverbs 21:2.)
The point is not that people need a king, but that we need the King,
God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords. (1 Timothy 6:15.)
As for God, his way is perfect. (Psalm 18:30.)
So rather than talk myself into thinking that the bad I do is not so bad, I’d rather be guided by the one whose ways are perfect.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John 14:26.)
Following the counsel of the Holy Spirit is not bad at all.
