Tell Me All About Samson

My granddaughter and I were sitting on the back porch.  She said, "Tell me all about Samson."  Not the first time.
Tell Me All About Samson
For the next 40 minutes or so, I told her about Samson.  It was more of a conversation.  Pretty much every fact was questioned with a, "Why?"  So we explored the Philistines, the source of Samson's strength, the deceit of Delilah, and the destruction of the building.

She wanted more so we moved to Saul and David's relationship.  Saul's disobedience and David's heart for God.

Her parents have done a great job laying a foundation.  We read to her all of the time.  She has an insatiable curiosity.

As dads and granddads, we have a unique place in our kids and their kids lives.  We will have opportunities like this multiple times at increasingly deep levels.  That is one of the reasons it is so important for us to do what Christ commands in John 15:7.  We have to know Him and know His Word really well.  So we can entrust that truth to our kids and grandkids.
