All Samson needed was a little nap,
So he laid his head in Delilah's lap.
He thought life would go on as it had before!
But, spending time in Delilah's lair,
Cost him more than his hair,
For later his future lay in shambles on the floor.
This man known for his might,
Lost his eyesight,
And wound up in a Philistine mill grinding corn.
The strongman was brought to his knees.
Then, his enemy mistreated him with ease.
No doubt Samson cursed the day he was born.
Ah, but Samson had a choice.
If he hadn't listened to Delilah's voice,
He could have been God's "Man of the hour!"
But his passions got in the way.
They kept him longer than he wanted to stay.
Thus, his relationship with God turned sour.
Samson's story should be a lesson to you and me.
If we would be what God wants us to be,
At all cost, we must avoid satan's snare.
Each day we must read God's Holy Word,
And live up to the preaching we have heard,
While spending much time in prayer!
