Judges 15: 20: “So Samson judged Israel twenty years in the days of the Philistines.” We can read Samson’s life tale in a few minutes, and it’s pretty much all negative. But we forget, he judged Israel twenty years! You never hear about that part. And remember the word of the angel to his parents, “He shall begin to deliver Israel from the hand of the Philistines.” (Judges 13: 5b) Didn’t he do this? And with a little more support and understanding, such as that which Jesus gave to the woman at the well, for instance (see Wednesday’s Office Memo), might he not have accomplished much more?
