In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

Judges 17:6 (ESV)

Has much really changed in the past three or four millennia? Decisions regarding right and wrong are certainly not determined by Christian values or against the yardstick of God’s Word! Two thousand years ago, there WAS a king in Israel, Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews; but he was rejected and crucified. At that time, he had a few faithful followers trying to live according to what was right in his eyes. It’s much the same today. Let us strive to do the right thing by following Paul’s advice to let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus (Phil.2:5).
