Irresponsible Samson is up to his arrogant, selfish tricks again in this week’s lesson as he takes a Philistine wife and plans a feast to celebrate. Find out who is invited to his feast and the wager and riddle he presents to them concerning his experience with a young lion. Hear how the new wife gets the answer to the riddle out of him by tears and pleading and the disastrous results Samson pursues as he pays the wager. Recognize from this that although Samson is totally disinterested in spiritual matters, God is always at work using Samson’s actions to fulfill His sovereign plans.
