SAMSON & DELILAH
Samson, the symbol of strength and courage. A model of muscle and strength that all men hope to obtain.
Indeed, man is consumed by the challenge of competition. Anything that challenges his strengths will have him alarmed. Man is willing to train and torture himself endlessly, just to be victorious in that challange. He trains his muscles to react, to be swift and overpowering.
But deep within, man senses his vulnerablity and is fearful of it. How ironic that mans greatest desire would also be his largest fear to conquer. This unique double edged sword that I speak of is the scent of a woman.....not a fragrence, but her smile, the look in her eyes, the softness of her skin.
Samson knew that with just one look into Delilah's eyes, he would not only reveal the secret of his strength,but he would reveal to the subsequent generations, the weakness of man!
I confess to having this inheritance!
