What it takes to lead

It may be the case that to lead a people or a nation requires an uncommonly deep understanding and grasp of the values and virtues a society needs to cultivate to make it work. It could be good and effective leadership is more difficult than it looks. It may be that's the reason God felt it necessary to enter into covenantal relationship with Israel, to teach the leadership what amounts to an uncommonly sophisticated system of principles as the minimum a people's ruling elite needs to get clear about what it takes to lead a people.
