Under Gods Command

Samson and Delilah

Judges 16:16-17 With such nagging she prodded him day after day until he was tired to death.  So he told her everything.  “No razor has ever been used on my head,” he said, “because I have been a Nazirite set apart to God since birth.  If my head were shaved, my strength would leave me, and I would become as weak as any other man.”

Delilah kept asking Samson for the secret of his strength until he finally grew tired of hearing her nagging and gave in.  This was the second time that Samson allowed himself to be worn down by constant nagging (14:17).  What a pitiful excuse for disobedience.

Lets Bring it Home: Don’t allow anyone, no matter how attractive, persuasive, or persistent-to talk you into doing wrong.
