So Abner said to him, "Turn to your right or to your left, and take hold of one of the young men for yourself, and take for yourself his spoil." But Asahel was not willing to turn aside from following him.

As Asahel pursued Abner relentlessly, no amount of pleading would turn the young man away. Whether driven by the thrill of the chase, or a desire to take out his enemy, or perhaps pride in his physical prowess, he would not relent. We see as we read on that the outcome was not good. So we too may be advised that prudent thinking, wise counsel, God's wisdom is always best as we too may be prone to fixate upon things that are not the Lord's perfect will.
