If there is a trait that we have lost in our modern society, and which causes us damage, it is the idea that we should seek to follow worthy leaders. In the days of David, the strong and the righteous sought out the best leaders they could and they followed them. Now, we have become a culture of weak and unrighteous who run from any leadership that seeks to improve us. In this, we need to become like the strong and the righteous of old – turning away from the false ideas of the present, swimming against the tide of culture, and finding and following righteous leaders where they may be found. This determination to follow is not a weakness, but a strength.
