Judges 14:1-4- Samson’s marriage to the Philistine woman is clearly outside of God’s desire (vs.3), but within His overall plan. (Vs. 4 is most likely an editorial comment helpful to understanding God’s perspective on ch. 14 & 15) Israel failed to eradicate the Philistines and now their deliverer intermarries with them. What can we learn about following through on our commitments to the LORD from Samson’s open disregard. How is vs.4 shocking to you- how is it a demonstration of God’s Grace? Sovereignty?
