Judges 14

Samson kills a lion; he marries a Philistine; he challenges the Philistine with a riddle; they coerce his wife to get the answer.

  • In verses 3-4 the Lord did not create evil or tempt with sin but sovereignly used Samson’s weakness for His purposes.
  • Samson was greatly used of the Lord despite his sinful desires and actions. Should that be an excuse for you—that since God can work despite your sin you can just go ahead and sin?
