What A Waste
Judges 13-16

Another type of waste that happens far too frequently, and really hurts to see, is the waste of a person’s life.

We are going to look at: What Samson Had, What Samson Did, What Samson Lost, and What Samson Learned.

Samson had parents who wanted him and believed in him, and Samson was also set aside by God.

Samson did whatever he wanted to do!

Samson knew that this marriage was against God’s will.

This act was the beginning of the end of Samson, as he would continue on this downward spiral of self-pleasure and self-gratification.

But Samson had forgotten that though his earthly father could not see and did not know, His Heavenly Father both saw and knew.

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:1

“So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you do not fall.” I Corinthians 10:12

Because he did whatever he wanted, he lost every bit of it and more.

He lost his strength. He lost his eye sight. He lost his freedom. He lost the presence of the Lord.

He learned the truth. He learned he had sinned. He learned he had to repent.

Samson learned that God can and will forgive and restore.
