Reading the description of what a king should be in Deuteronomy 17:14-20 reminds me of how any leader should be. They are not to be greater than all the rest with the goal of attaining extravagant perks. They are not to use the people for their own glory. They are not to work for the sake of self indulgence. Unfortunately, sometimes, leaders feel the actual job is a way to achieve the reward. Leadership is about servanthood, not about self gratification and indulgence. There is responsibility for everyone under you, not the other way around. If leaders, whether they lead a small team or an entire country like the United States, were to remember this they would be much more effective, respected, loved, and followed.
