We all know Samson's story right? Samson was a strong man he killed a lot of philistines when he became the judge of Israelites. God was upon Him that time of glory. But we also know how dumb Samson was.. He didn't know that Delilah was tricking him, or maybe he knew in someway but still, 4 times? wouldn't he recognized it by that time? How dumb right?
Why do you think Samson let it happen? out of pride? lust? or love? maybe everything, but I say LOVE, why love? He could be with any woman that time but he choose Delilah, cause he liked her, he loved her and we don't know why, but there's something special that he sees in Delilah, but so bad he wanted to have her, He might have known that Delilah was tricking her, but out of love he denies it. I did not mean that with love you will fail, but it's how you love, who you love first, who you're pleasing out of love.. When God is not your first love, and it becomes the person you are with then lust and pride will come along. I'm not in a relationship right now and I'm not married, I don't know how hard could it be not to mix those things up, that's why reading God's word is very important, it reminds you, warns you.. not to harm you but for us to prosper. Deutoronomy 6:24 The Lord commanded us to obey all these decrees so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the ease today. jdf
If only Samson was smart enough to figure out that time, no? But see the Bible is a non-fiction book,it talks about real life. This sin, the same sin that Samson did is still happening. But lets not use it as an excuse to sin, "those guys sinned, and still there's a good outcome, Samson killed a lot of philistines.. but he died also".. That's how God loves us, there's still a good outcome even if we fail him, But as one of the apostle said it dead to sin and alive in Christ, so we might as well go with His way right? when we know that our way will never be as good as His. Lesson learned with Samson, lets not mingle with sin, even if it looks little, when we know that there's something wrong, run! don't let it come to worse before it comes to your senses. okay? =D God bless!
