Samson (CSSA Junior Stage 2 Lesson 15)
The life of Samson can be very easy to make relate-able to children. The struggle we see within Samson as he wants to do God’s will and yet struggles with the weight of sin – as Paul said “For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.” The life of Samson is so much more then a man struggling with the lust of the eyes – it’s about the battle that rages within each of us to fight for the inheritance God has promised us, while sin wars a battle against the spiritual man.

Lesson 15 – Practical Challenge
Delilah said that she loved Samson, but true friends would not betray each other like she did. Be true and honest to your friends and choose friends who will help you make good and right decisions.

for when I am weak, then am I strong.”
