not the samson my second grade teacher taught me about

Digital Felt Productions

This is Lesson Four in a six week series on Judges . Samson was called to be so much more than an egomaniacal, self-seeking, revenge-driven bully. But instead of following Godís path, he followed his own. Every day we choose to follow our own path, or follow Jesus.

The Verses
Judges 13-16, 2 Corinthians 9:7-9, Ephesians 4:29-32

The Gist
Samson was not the hero we often make him out to be. He was incredibly flawed and had little desire to do Godís will. Samson was driven by revenge and his own ego.

The Point
When we only look to our own interests, we choose violence and hate instead of forgiveness. These things can destroy us just like they destroyed Samson.
