March 8, 1 Samuel 14:24-30
Saul makes a foolish rash decision to not let anyone stop to eat until the battle is over. We can only assume his reasons were that the Philistines were getting away and feared that if they stopped at all they would lose the advantage. The opposite was true, exhausted troops couldn't keep up. It wouldn't take much to make a difference. As the text reads, Jonathan's eyes were brightened with a bit of honey. When blood sugars are at a low, energy is down just a little honey, maybe a piece of fruit to pick them up. Runners and athletes use bananas and oranges to sustain long events. Saul's concern was on his enemies, as the king his concern should have been on his own people. The difference between a leader and a good leader.
