How to Know If you’re caught up in a Bad Relationship


If the person you’re connected with is GUIDED BY GREED, then you’re caught up in a bad relationship. Write that down… In this text we discover that greed caused Delilah to betray her lover, Samson. – we clearly see this in verse 4 through 6: After this it came about that he loved a woman in the valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah.

The lords of the Philistines came up to her and said to her, “Entice him, and see where his great strength lies and how we may overpower him that we may bind him to afflict him. Then we will each give you eleven hundred pieces of silver.” So Delilahsaid to Samson, “Please tell me where your great strength is and how you may be bound to afflict you.”

Samson was hooked up with a woman who was guided by greed. And I know that Delilah was guided by greed because she was offered and she accepted a whole lot of money to betray Samson. In order to understand how much money was being offered to Delilah, you have to understand that this text says that the LORDS OF THE PHILISTINES came to Delilah and each offered her 1100 pieces of silver.

Now, the text doesn’t explicitly tell us how many lords, or how many men came to do this dirty deal with Delilah, but we do know from Biblical research that the Philistine nation was made up of 5 major cities and each of these cities had its own king, its own ruler or its own Lord. And so, although the text doesn’t explicitly tell us the exact number of men that came to Delilah, most Bible scholars believe that at least 5 Philistine lords approached Delilah about betraying Samson.

And so, based on Biblical research and using our sanctified imagination, if at least five philistine lords offered Delilah 1100 pieces of silver each, then Delilah was being offered at least 5500 pieces of silver to betray Samson. And 5500 pieces of silver back in those days was enough money to set you up for the rest of your life. And so when she discovered how much money she was being offered, she decided these revenues meant more than her relationship, this cash meant more than her commitment, this silver meant more to her than Samson, and she decided to sell out her man for 5500 pieces of silver.

Samson found himself in the midst of a bad relationship because he was in an intimate relationship with a woman who was guided by greed. People who are guided by greed are people who are more concerned with what they can get than what they can give, their goal is to do whatever it takes to acquire money and possessions, money is their god, materialism is their philosophy, getting more things is their goal and selfishness is their guiding motivation.
