May 25 // God's will accomplished.

Read Judges 16:30 out loud with your family.

Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.

 

Q: Your goal is to win a diving competition. If you trip and mess up your dive, but still win, did you accomplish your goal?

 

Parent Note: God's goal was to free the Israelites from the Philistine oppression. Would He have preferred Samson to have acted in a more Godly manner? It's pretty safe to assume that He would have. Regardless of Samson's motives for laying waste to the Philistines, their cities, and crops, Samson was accomplishing God's goal. 

 

Pray this out loud together:

Dear God, You gave Samson such incredible strength.
By Your Holy Spirit, You give us spiritual strength today.
Help us to use it to glorify you.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
