In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes (Judges 17:6).
Everyone needs guidance. Man does not know how to properly direct his life without God (Jeremiah 10:23). Solomon observed, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12). Everyone believes that what he thinks is correct (Proverbs 16:2; 21:2). Man needs God!
Every nation needs to build its value system on God. “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil” (Proverbs 3:5–7).
