Carelessness weakens our lives. The strength of Samson wasn’t in his hair. It was in his commitment to God. His hair was a representation of his commitment to God. He forgot his Nazirite vows. He toyed with temptation. Delilah, in Judges 16, “…pestered him daily… so that his soul was vexed to death.” (Biblical proof that spousal nagging works?) She simply agreed with the Philistines to try to find out his strength for 1100 shekels (that’s 25,000 to 30,000 of today’s dollars). Three times Samson gets closer to the truth and then finally tells her the truth. When we compromise our convictions, we are playing with fire… eternal fire.
