22 The Israelites said to Gideon, “Rule over us—you, your son and your grandson—because you have saved us from the hand of Midian.”
23 But Gideon told them, “I will not rule over you, nor will my son rule over you. The Lord will rule over you.”
Our attitude and allegiance should ultimately be to the Lord, not to people or their relatives.
How do you respond when people praise you for your deeds and accomplishments?
