Taken for Judges Chapter 16
A long time ago, there was a man named Samson. Samson was powerful because God had given him extraordinary strength. He was so strong that he could even kill a lion with his bare hands!
One day, Samson met a woman named Delilah. Delilah was beautiful, but unfortunately, she was not a good person. The Philistine leaders hired her to find out the secret of Samson's strength so that they could arrest him.
Delilah tried many times to get Samson to tell her his secret, but he kept his secret safe. Finally, after much begging and pleading, Samson told Delilah that his strength came from his long hair.
So while Samson was sleeping, Delilah cut off all of his hair. With his hair gone, Samson lost his extraordinary strength. The Philistines were able to arrest him and put him in jail.
But God did not forget about Samson. One day, the Philistines were having a big celebration, and they brought Samson out to make fun of him. Samson prayed to God to give him strength one last time, and God answered his prayer.
Samson pushed against the pillars of the building where the Philistines were gathered, and the whole building collapsed, killing Samson and all of the Philistines inside.
The story of Samson and Delilah teaches us that it is essential to be careful who we trust and that we should never forget to be faithful to God, even when it's hard.
