Judges 16:4 And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah.
Anyone reading the story of Samson is always shocked by how he let women control his life. He chose a wife that didn’t please his parents. He got rejected and mistreated by her. Wicked women will be the story of his life. He so wants the love of a woman that he does anything that they ask. They may mock him or even try to hurt him, but he keeps coming back for more.
Now we see Samson loving the woman that will destroy him. She will deceive him over and over, and he will come back for more. It is hard to understand how he let that happen.
The person you love will have enormous power over you. You must choose that person wisely. They will affect the way you think and act for the rest of your life. Your heart, your love will push you to live to please them. That means you must choose wisely. You must choose a person that will drive and motivate you to do the right and best. God has a plan for you. Do not let the wrong person get in an destroy all that you can be and become. Choose wisely where to give your heart.
