Here we see a horrible defeat to the Isrealites. The sad thing is it was all due to Saul's pride and sin as a leader. Another sad thing is that Jonathan died because of Saul's pathetic leadership. This shows that people walking with God the right way can be affected by those in leadership who are not following God correctly. As a leader, Saul was given kingship from the King of Kings, but instead of being used mightily he killed himself and brought death upon many others. I pray that when we are given leadership by God we would recognize that it belongs to Him, and realize what an impact we have on others!
