Discussion for 1 Samuel 14

    A Disciple; yes wisdom is the principle thing.
  • A disciple
    Anne; this is like the part where Jesus and the disciples went through the corn fields on Sabbath, and the Pharisees found fault and accused them. The example Jesus gave tells us so much about God's thoughts, and having mercy, and using common sense. And the Lord's answer, that "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath;" is the part that teaches us the nature of the Spirit in the Law.
  • Anne
    Apparently, Jonathan did not think that his father's order was wise in forbidding the men to nourish themselves. He felt that more could have been done if the men had eaten.
  • April
    Johnathan seemed to have been moved by father to go without telling anyone else but one person,but when he ate the honey,although he didn't hear what his father said,he should have repented for his wrong doing,or try to see if he could make an amends,we all make mistakes,but does that mean we shouldn't feel something when we make them?,especially since one mans sin leads to the falter of ALL?Amen.

    Enobong; if you are still around - your comment on 1 Sam. 14:7 and etc, was just right on.
  • Enobong
    When it comes to God, it is not a question of strategy or tactics, victory comes any how He wants it. We also see the power of agreement working between Jonathan and his armour bearer. Jonathan took a risk which I believe was divinely inspired. Lesson: Don't share your vision with everyone and move away from negative people. Be bold and take God by His word.
