Wants vs. Wisdom

Re: Verse reading–Judges 16:4-30 (day two)
None of us get into our deepest problems all at once. We take baby steps towards destruction and tell ourselves that it’s not that big of a deal. Samson was no excuse. His dad had told him to stay away from the idol-worshipping girls, but Samson chose his wants over wisdom (Judges 14:3). Just like Eve and all the rest of us who willingly replace the wisdom of our Father for the wishes of the moment, Samson walked one step at a time down a path of destruction. Will you live by His wisdom or your wants? It’s a choice we make over and over again every day. Listen for the Father’s voice saying, “My son, pay attention to my words; listen closely to my sayings. Don’t lose sight of them; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and health to one’s body. Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life” (Proverbs 4:20-13).
