Are you in a relationship with someone who knows all your secrets, but they won’t tell you any of their secrets?
Delilah was demanding from Samson what she was not willing to give Samson.
Remember: GODLY RELATIONSHIPS ARE BASED ON MUTUAL VULNERABILITY & ACCOUNTABILITY
Prov 12:22 – Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal faithfully are His delight.
HONESTY & INTEGRITY
Are you hooked up with someone who keeps playing games at your expense?
Delilah kept playing games with Samson. She played games with his emotions and his affections and she led him to believe that she cared about him when she really didn’t…
Don’t play games in your relationships – Let honesty and integrity guide what you do.
Prov 11:3 The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them.
LOVE ISN’T LOVE UNTIL IT IS EXPRESSED (if you give it, you ought to expect to get it)
Are you in a relationship where you express love but the person never expresses love to you?
Samson had relationships with two other women in his life (his marriage to the woman from Timnah and his night with the hoochie from Gaza), BUT DELILAH WAS THE ONLY WOMAN SAMSON EVER LOVED.
But although he expressed loved to Delilah, Delilah never expressed her love for him… UNRECIPROCATED LOVE IN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS CAUSES HEARTACHE AND PAIN…
IT OUGHT TO BE A DIFINITE RELATIONSHIP RED FLAG IF YOU’RE EXPRESSING LOVE TO SOMEONE, BUT THEY DON’T EXPRESS LOVE BACK TO YOU
