Samson Got A Haircut!

By: Carletta Traylor aka C.N.

Calling all manipulative Monicas! Calling all manipulative Monicas! Let’s face it, ladies; we can be manipulative at times (you all know that it’s true! Don’t try to deny it! Haha). Kids, “manipulative” is just a fancy way of saying that we use our pretty faces, nice smelling perfumes, and compliments to get people to do things for us that they’d never do on their own (name one grown man who CHOOSES to spend 3 hours in the candle store on a Friday night because those snickerdoodles are “to die for.” YOU CAN’T NAME ONE! THEY DON’T EXIST! MANIPULATION! Haha).

 

Ladies, when we really want something, we’ll lose our ever-loving minds to get it; we’ll see our minds and common sense fall into the steam pot, watch them boil, and won’t do a thing to try to stop it (you NUT! Haha). In light of today being Day#3 of my “Are These Women Crazy?!” series, we’re going to explore one of the greatest instances of female manipulation in human history-the story of Samson and Delilah in the Bible. NOTE: I will be summarizing 3 chapters of the Bible here, so my summary might be a little longer than usual (as I’ve stated in a previous post, it’s not because women can’t get to the point, either! Stereotypes! Haha).

 

In the 16th Chapter of Judges, we see a dashing young man (who says “dashing” anymore?! Haha) named Samson-God has blessed Samson with supernatural strength (that boy is STRONG, y’all! He can lift up buildings, rip lions in half, and everything! He makes Thor look like an extra soft Skittle; if Thor tries to taste the rainbow, he’ll break his jaw because he’s WEAK! Haha) to do his work in the nation of Israel. One day, Samson loses his mind (he lets his strength go to his head, even though HE hasn’t done anything; GOD is the one who gave you that strength, you clown…Haha), abandons God’s work, and starts running after women that God never told him to run after (get your head out of your pants, clown! Haha).

 

In the 14th and 15th Chapters of Judges (right before Samson started drinking the moron’s milk with his frosted flakes every morning), he fell in love with a Philistine woman (unnamed), married her (against his parents’ wishes-can’t you find a nice, wholesome Israelite girl to bring home to Mother? Haha), and threw a big feast in her honor (it’s about time! Mama’s gotta eat! Haha). While everyone was eating, drinking (herbal tea, of course), and being merry, Samson got cockier than roosters on a hot summer morning, and tried to stump his party guests with a riddle (the winner gets 30 linen garments and 30 sets of clothes-OH BOY! LINEN CLOTHES! I CAN’T CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT!).

 

The party guests were more confused than Ru Paul for three days, but instead of manning up and admitting that they didn’t know the answer (and thus, forking over the linen), they threatened to burn Samson’s wife and her father to death if she didn’t get her husband to explain the riddle to them (oh no they didn’t! I wish a clown would threaten me like that! I would pop so many caps in their-stifle yourself, Carletta! I’m sorry. Please forgive me, Lord. I need help, y’all. Haha).

 

Understandably scared, Samson’s wife gets him to spill the beans on the riddle, and Samson becomes upset. Here’s where Samson starts sipping the stupid juice, however: while he was upset that his guests had threatened his wife to get the answer to his riddle, he was MORE upset that they had solved his riddle (daww, his widdle pride was hurt), and he called a wife a female cow in expressing his anger over them manipulating her. AWWW, HECKY NO! I know that you didn’t just call me out of my name and care more about your little lame riddle than your WIFE, the woman that YOU asked to marry you! You better get your sleeping bag and tent ready, pal-you’re sleeping in the front lawn tonight (I hope that it doesn’t rain! Haha).

 

Side note: Samson actually visits the Philistines and takes 30 of their linen garments (are you that desperate for clothes, boy?! Cut up an old shower curtain and wear it like a normal person! Haha).

 

In light of this “minor miscommunication,” Samson’s wife’s father talks her into staying with one of his companions; when Samson goes to see her (I’m sorry, Baby! I was wrong! I didn’t mean to say those nasty things about you! I love you! Please forgive me!), his wife’s father refuses to let him in. As a way of exacting revenge on the Philistines (I can’t see my wife because of you LOSERS?!), Samson destroys their vineyards by catching 300 foxes, tying them tail to tail in pairs, putting torches (FIRE!) on each of their tails, and letting them run loose through the Philistines’ grain (burning up everything, y’all!). The Philistines retort by killing Samson’s wife and father (NO THEY DIDN’T!!!!), and Samson goes Super Saiyan on them in the best of ways: he kills 1,000 Philistines with his bare hands (Goku who?! Haha), the authorities try to tie him up, God helps Samson to break his ropes (like a BOSS!), Samson finds a donkey’s jawbone, and he uses the jawbone to kill ANOTHER 1,000 Philistines (that boy just went crazy, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ! Haha)!

 

Kicking butt makes you thirsty, and as such, God opened up a hollow place in Lehi, allowed Samson to drink the water from it, Samson felt refreshed and stronger than ever, and he led the Israelites against those BUSTERS, the Philistines, for twenty years. Samson struts his stuff into Gaza, and this is where all heck breaks loose…he meets Delilah (FINALLY! We almost forgot that this post was about Delilah, Carletta; you were RAMBLING ON SO! Haha).

 

In the 16th Chapter of Judges, the people of Gaza find out that Samson is in town (to see a woman of the night; SHAMEFUL! Haha), and in a plot to kill him (they were saltier than Pringles, y’all! Haha), they wait for him outside of his room. Here’s the thing, though-Samson just rips the doors and doorposts off like it isn’t a thing, puts them on his shoulders, and carries them up a hill-he’s clearly training for this year’s Strongman competition, y’all. Haha. It is atop this hill, in the valley of Sorek, where he meets and falls in love with a woman named Delilah (It’s a trap! It’s a trap! God does NOT want you here, Samson! God does NOT want you here! Delilah is NOT your friend, bruh!). The lords of the Philistines (notice the lowercase “l”-the only true Lord (capital “L”) is our Lord and Savior, and God’s beloved son, Jesus Christ) make a deal with Delilah: if you (Delilah) can find out how and where Samson gets his supernatural strength from, so that we can weaken and destroy him, we’ll each pay you 1,100 pieces of silver (which would be the same as them paying her $89,641.00 today-don’t sell out God’s man like that! Haha).

Delilah, being the manipulative Monica that she is, agrees to this deal with the Philistines and begins Operation: Betray a Buster. Delilah begins to question Samson about his supernatural strength, but instead of at least TRYING to be sneaky about it, she outright asks him what must be done to weaken him and make him prime picking for the enemy (Wow, Delilah. Why don’t you just tell the bank the day before that you plan on robbing it; let me know how well that works out for you. Facepalm. Haha). Samson is smarter (and stronger) than the average bear, and as such, he falsely tells Delilah the following:

 

Judges 16:7 (KJV)- And Samson said unto her, If they bind me with seven green withs that were never dried, then shall I be weak, and be as another man.

 

Delilah ACTUALLY BELIEVES that Samson would give her the goods that easily (she’s not the brightest bulb in the chandelier. Haha), tells her buddies (the Philistines, those soggy seaweeds) what to do, they attempt to bind Samson with seven green withs (cords or ropes), and SHOCKER, it doesn’t work (he broke them without breaking a nail or a sweat. Haha)! Delilah is “hurt” that her boo thang, Samson, has made a fool of her (no, honey, you made a fool out of yourself. Haha), and again asks him to tell her the secret of his strength. Samson next tells her the following:

 

Judges 16:11 (KJV)- And he said unto her, If they bind me fast with new ropes that never were occupied, then shall I be weak, and be as another man.

 

Delilah falls for it again, folks (she once again shows that she isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer. Haha)! Delilah believes that Samson has revealed the secret to his superior strength, tells the Philistines to bind him with new ropes, and SURPRISE, it fails again (he breaks the ropes and uses them as dental floss. Haha)!

 

At this point, you would have thought that Delilah would have smartened up, but NOPE (she’s still stuck on stupid, y’all!)! She asks Samson a third time to reveal the secret to his strength, he falsely tells her to weave the seven locks of his head with a web (braiding time! Samson wants to get his hair done. They have a hot date tonight. Haha), she believes him (and weaves his locks together), she calls the Philistines back while Samson’s sleeping, and SURPRISE-it still doesn’t work!

 

Delilah starts whining like a wild banjee (why won’t you tell me the secret to your strength?! If you loved me, you would tell me the truth! Don’t you love me?! Haven’t I been good to you?! Why are you doing this to me?!), and begins to NAG SAMSON TO DEATH about the secret to his strength (as a woman, let me be the first to say that NAGGING IS NOT CUTE! STOP IT! Haha). She bugs him about his strength all day, all night, at noontime, ALL THE TIME. Samson gets so tired of hearing Delilah’s mouth that he finally caves in and tells her the truth about his strength (leave me alone already! Haha). He tells her the following:

 

Judges 16:17 (KJV)- That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.

 

The truth has finally come out! Samson’s God-given strength is in his hair, and the moment one cuts his hair, he will become weak and have normal human strength. Delilah is giddier than a kid in a candy store (I should blow pixie dust into her eyes. Haha jkjkjk), she puts Samson to sleep in her lap (no one wants to hear your off-key lullaby singing, clown!), she quickly calls the Philistine lords to her house (they bring the money they promised to pay her), one of the men quickly cut off Samson’s seven locks, and his strength immediately leaves him (NOOOOOOO!!!! I knew I shouldn’t have trusted you, you wicked witch of the West!). When Samson wakes up, the Philistines gouge his eyes out, bind him with brass chains, and put him into one of their prisons. They plan on sacrificing him to one of their fake gods (those posers!), but not before he entertains them first (Dance, boy! Dance! How is he supposed to dance when he can’t see?!).

 

Samson prays to God and asks him to please give him superior strength to get revenge on the Philistines for taking his two eyes (please remember me, Lord! I know that I’ve messed up and should have listened to you! I’m sorry! Please forgive me! I really need your help right now.). God has mercy on Samson (thank you, Jesus!) and gives him his supernatural strength back. In his last act of strength, Samson yells out “Let me die with the Philistines,” and he pulls the pillars of the house down, killing everyone, including himself, inside (he went out like a champ! Haha). Samson had just killed more evil Philistines now than he had ever killed during his lifetime (God blessed him to be raw like that! Haha), and his family and friends buried him in the burying place of his father, Manoah. Samson was a hero for the Israelites, and he shall never be forgotten!

 

WOW! That was exciting! I have goosebumps right now! Haha God blessed Samson with supernatural strength to do his work in Israel (against the evil Philistines). When Samson followed God’s lead, he flourished. When he ignored God and started delving into sin (saying, doing, not doing, and thinking bad things), he lost his strength (he was weak), he lost his eyes (he was blind), and he lost himself. Let us always listen to and follow God, as he loves us, wants to take care of us, and always knows what is best for us. I’m ready for this action-packed remix, y’all (just the interactions between Samson and Delilah)! I wonder how things would have played out had this story happened today? Let’s get to it! NOTE: I will be utilizing modern day language, technology, and ways of living in this story, as we’re picturing this happening today.

 

Samson Got A Haircut!

By: Carletta Traylor aka C.N.

Biblical Reference: Judges, Chapter 16

*God has blessed Samson with supernatural strength to protect the Israelites against the evil Philistines (those lint lickers. Haha). As long as Samson follows God’s instructions, he’s golden (killing suckas with his bare hands and everything!). When he starts doing whatever he feels like doing-ignoring God-he gets himself into SERIOUS trouble (SOS! SOS! Someone help me, PLEASSSEEEEE!). Samson falls in love with a sneaky woman named Delilah, who has just made a deal with the Devil (the Philistine lords) to reveal the secrets of his strength; the lords will pay Delilah $89,641.00 for telling them how to weaken and bind Samson forever…or so they think. This Jezebel is on the loose!*

Delilah: Sweetie poo?

Samson: Yes, darling?

Delilah: You know how much I love you, right?

Samson: Of course I do, honey. I love you too.

Delilah: Thank you, baby. One of the first things that attracted me to you was how strong you were. I love a strong man who can protect me at all costs. I remember when you drove to the scene of that accident on I-94 (the worst! Haha), lifted that car up with your index finger, and saved everyone inside (no casualties! Thank you, Jesus!). You were a hero, and I knew right then and there that I wanted to get to know you better. *Samson starts smiling like a maniac. Haha* I was wondering, how did you get so strong? What’s your secret? Is there any way to lessen your strength or make it a fair fight between you and any other guy (i.e. honey, what’s the best way to weaken you so that the neighborhood bullies can jump you and win? Haha)?

*Samson sees what Delilah is trying to do, and ever so sweetly LIES to her about how to take his strength away. Haha*

Samson: My love, God gave me this supernatural strength, but there is a way to take it away. If you wrap seven wet, green water hoses around me, and make me look like the Jolly Green Giant, I will be weakened and have common male strength.

Delilah: Thank you for telling me, honey!

*Delilah has the Philistine lords on speed dial, y’all! She quickly goes outside and calls them, telling them to bring seven wet, green water hoses with them. When they arrive, they trick Samson into playing freeze tag with them, quickly wrap the water hoses around him, and wait to see him melt like ice cream on the sidewalk (I’m melting! Haha). It doesn’t work, however-Samson snaps the water hoses like rubber bands, does one of those “good morning” stretches, and goes back to eating his burger and fries. Haha*

Delilah: Why didn’t you tell me the truth, Samson?! I don’t like being tricked like that! *Waaa! Waa! Waa! Call this girl a wambulance.* Please, tell me the truth about your strength. How does one take your strength away (wow, Delilah is a moron. I’m sorry, “intellectually challenged.” Haha)?

Samson: I’m sorry, my love. I’ll tell you the truth this time. If you quickly wrap wooden ropes around me, the ones that those guys in the Strongman competitions use to pull semi-trucks (like he would even need a rope. Haha), I’ll lose my strength and be as strong as everyone else.

Delilah: Thank you so much for telling me, my love!

Samson: No problem.

*Delilah is so gullible. Haha. She quickly goes to Menards, buys wooden rope, and calls the Philistine lords, telling them to meet her in her driveway in 15 minutes. They oblige, quickly wrap the ropes around Samson while he’s working in his garden (I love a man with a garden. Haha), and wait to see him deflate like a balloon (*sound of air coming out of a balloon*). *Oops, he did it again; he made her believe, that this was the end! Ooh baby, baby-sorry. Haha* Her plan failed again, y’all! Samson quickly ripped the ropes in half and continued harvesting his award-winning radishes.*

Delilah: Samson! This isn’t funny! Why won’t you tell me the secret to your strength?! I want to know the truth! Please tell me!

Samson: You’re right, my love. I’ll be serious this time. If you braid my dreadlocks into one large braid (he’s channeling his inner Bob Marley again. Haha), my supernatural strength will go POOF! and disappear.

Delilah: Thank you for telling me, Babycakes!

Samson: Anytime, sweet thang.

*The third time was NOT the charm, as Delilah braided his hair, called the Philistines over for a play date, they watched him like annoying eavesdroppers (those nosy neighbors that you want to punch. Haha Just kidding, kids! Jesus is love. Haha), and…wait for it…he was still super strong! You’re done, Delilah. You are so done. Haha*

Delilah: Don’t you love me anymore, Samson?! You’ve lied to me three times about your strength, you’ve had me out here looking like Boo-Boo the Fool (no, you did that to yourself, honey. Haha), and I’m tired of it! PLEASE TELL ME THE TRUTH!!!!

*Delilah proceeds to NAG SAMSON TO DEATH, bugging him all day, every day, about the secret to his supernatural strength. Samson gets tired of hearing Delilah’s mouth and finally tells her the truth. Yes, it’s the actual truth this time. Haha*

Samson: Alright! Here’s the God-honest truth. My strength is in my hair. If someone cuts my hair, I will lose all of my supernatural strength and will be just like any other man. I’m not lying this time! This is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so PLEASE help me, God!

Delilah: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

*Delilah puts Samson to sleep in her lap, calls the Philistines over (they bring the electric clippers and money that they owe her), they cut his dreadlocks off, and Samson loses his strength! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! When Samson wakes up, they spray pepper mace in his eyes (blinding him! You don’t hear about people gouging one another’s eyes out these days. Haha), tie him up, and throw him in prison. They’re going to sacrifice him to their second-rate, fake gods (LOSERS!), but they want him to break-dance first (stereotypes! Haha).

Samson prays and asks God to please give him the superior strength to get revenge on the Philistines for blinding him-he realizes that he messed up and should’ve listened to God (he never should’ve fallen for Delilah). God’s grace and mercy shine through, as he answers Samson’s prayer. In his last act of strength, Samson wants to die with the Philistines, and proceeds to break off the pillars of the building, causing the entire building to collapse, killing everyone, including himself, inside. Samson just killed more Philistines now than he ever did during his lifetime-he went out like a BOSS! Haha Samson’s family honors his memory and buries him in the same cemetery where his father is buried. Rest in peace, Samson, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.*

  1. I love the use of classical, biblical imagery mixed with cartoonish images during this story/post, it really seems to mix it up and I imagine will keep kids engaged!

    1. Thank you so much, Tony! I definitely want learning about Jesus Christ and the Bible to be as fun and understandable as possible, for children and adults alike. I love to mix up the words, images, and styles! God bless you!

  2. The story of Samson and Delilah is so epic. It teaches us a lot of life lessons and morals…… about trust and betrayal. For Samson to further his mission as a King, he needed God to bless him. Without the blessings of strength, he would not have been able to defeat the Philistines.
    Without that strength he could do nothing.
    We are only able to fulfil our mission in life when God blesses us.

    1. Thank you so much, Ekufaa! God has a very specific calling on all of our lives, and when we walk in our purpose (completely obeying and submitting to God’s will), he will always equip us to do his work. As you’ve mentioned, Samson would not have been able to defeat the Philistines without God giving him the supernatural strength to do so. When Samson lost his strength and focus on God, he was powerless, lost his eyes, and became a prisoner. Only with God can miraculous things happen. God bless you!

  3. Such an entertaining way to spread bible stories with such good morals. You made an ancient story almost sound modern. Great job on spreading the Word in such a fun and inventive way.
    God Bless and Stay Healthy!

    1. Thank you so much, Jamie! I love Jesus Christ, love to laugh, and love people-why not combine all three for the glory of God? Haha I’m so happy that you enjoyed my story! I’ll definitely keep them coming! God bless you!

  4. This is one of the most dramatic stories of betrayal and I loved how you portrayed it and added your dialogue. There were several details I did not know about this story, so it was good to read this again 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Christine! The story of Samson and Delilah is one of my favorites in the entire Bible; it’s so action packed from beginning to end! I had to add my two cents in; God gave me a sense of humor. Haha I’m so happy that you enjoyed my story! God bless you!

  5. I really enjoyed this retelling in your own unique way. You make these stories sound more fun than if I were to read them myself straight from the source. It’s a great format to learn from, so much more engaging and entertaining. Taking something so serious and then putting a humorous and playful spin to it, it’s a fantastic way to learn the lessons this story is trying to teach. Thanks for this!

    1. Thank you so much, Ryzehn! I love Jesus Christ, love to laugh, and love people-why not combine all three for the glory of God? Haha God blessed me with a sense of humor, and I will forever use it for his glory! Haha I’m so happy that you enjoyed my story! God bless you!

  6. The Bible is so full of adventure, romance, betrayal, etc. I love this story and it teaches such a good lesson. You have such a great way of telling stories. Great job!

    1. Thank you so much, Carla! My pastor taught us an acronym for the Bible: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. God’s Word is our road map for how to navigate this life, including what not to do and how not to act (let’s not be a Delilah! Haha). When we read these types of stories, juicy details and all, there’s always a lesson behind it. Thank God for his Word, his lessons, and his wonderful sense of humor! Haha God bless you!

    1. Thank you so much, Asen! The story of Samson and Delilah is epic indeed-it shows us that 1) we can do nothing without God (all good and perfect gifts come from God), 2) when we rely on ourselves, we will stumble and fall (sin), as well as the fact that 3) God’s mercy, grace, and love can (and will) restore us, if we truly want it. God bless you!

  7. thanks for sharing this with the world.
    I actually know the story since childhood, but the more interesting thing is that I live next to the valley where it has happened (or at least the authorities believe so). There is a nice church with paints of Samson and the story of his haircut is well told through these paints.
    very nice post, still relevant even today after thousands of years.
    well done.

    1. Thank you so much, Fares! The story of Samson and Delilah is one of my favorites in the entire Bible. God truly shows that all good and perfect gifts come from him and him alone; we can do nothing without him. You live right next to the valley?! That is awesome! I want to visit the various sites of the Bible, starting with Nazareth and Bethlehem. Just to walk the grounds where so many of God’s miracles took place (both through himself and through our Lord and Savior, his son, Jesus Christ) would be absolutely amazing. God’s Word speaks to current times and the world that we’re living in-forever relevant and forever needed. God bless you!

  8. Hi Carleta,

    I love your version of Sampsons’ story.

    And through all of his stumbling and bumbling, one thought never left my mind. God never makes mistakes.

    He intended Sampson to do everything that he did, and he finally accepted God’s love and leadership as the one true God.

    Praise the Lord, Jesus Christ!

    Michael

    1. Thank you so much, Michael! God certainly never makes mistakes; he knows everything that we’re going to say, do, and think before it happens. God will allow certain things to happen to get us to the point where we have the mind, heart, and soul to live for him, submit to his will, follow his purposes for our lives, and truly put him first. When this happens, beautiful things take place! God bless you!

  9. Carletta,
    Thank you for telling the story of Samson! It is the classic story of hero to zero. I appreciate your fun and animated way of telling the story and including KJV verses into the text. It’s interesting how Samson did not want to tell Delilah his true weakness because he knew he needed to protect it. It is one of the most intriguing stories of the Bible. Well done!

    1. Thank you so much, Robert! The story of Samson and Delilah is one of my favorite stories in the entire Bible; it truly shows that we can’t do anything without God, and every good and perfect gift comes from God. When Samson listened to God, he was able to rip lions in half with ease; when he strayed away from God, he lost his strength, his sight, and his freedom. When we keep our eyes on God’s ways and his will for our lives. he will always take care of us. God bless you!

  10. As always you have given a great depiction of the story of Samson. Not only have you broken it down into ‘layman’s’ language, you’ve written it in a simple format for all age groups to be able to identify with as they read. I enjoy your style of storytelling immensely. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so much, Ola! The story of Samson and Delilah is one of my favorites in the entire Bible; I wanted to make sure that everyone, children and adults alike, could understand and enjoy it. I’m so happy that you enjoy my style of writing (thank you, Jesus!)! God bless you!

  11. This was a very entertaining account of the story of Samson and Delilah. I was caught up in it, and I love how fun it is.
    You’d have thought that Samson would have picked up on the fact that Delilah was up to something. But sadly he eventually ended up telling her his secret.
    This is a great lesson about betrayal and being obedient to the Almighty.
    Thank you for sharing these amazing stories, well done. Keep up the great work.

    1. Thank you so much, Mikhail! The story of Samson and Delilah is one of my favorites in the entire Bible-it’s action-packed and contains a very important lesson about listening to God, following his instructions, and not trying to do things on our own (we’ll fail every time). I’m so happy that you enjoyed my story! God bless you!

  12. Wow, just as a started to read the article I was thinking yeah great I never know what to read to the little ones at bed time, I barely remember any nursery rhymes and I’m pretty sure I don’t have a copy of the bible in the play room. Then there’s an excellent humorous and modern spin on your article, I thought it was brilliant on so many levels, this is one of my favourite blogs, It’s soo cunning and to make it even worse I related well to the article because I relate well to Monica! Great read, thank you

    1. Thank you so much, Ashyra! I love Jesus Christ, love to laugh, and love people-why not combine all three for the glory of God? Haha So many people don’t know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and I want reading about Christ and the Bible to be as fun, enjoyable, relatable, and understandable as possible, for children and adults alike. I’m so happy that you enjoyed my story! I will definitely keep them coming! God bless you!

  13. Hi Carletta,
    This story is a classic! There’s so much to learn from this. But it all comes down to obedience doesn’t it.
    Samson’s not the first and certainly not the last to go his own way. Even after experiencing the blessings of doing God’s will, he still ends up living in the “flesh”.
    Sometimes I wish God didn’t give us free will, lol.
    I’m happy knowing that one day we’ll be in eternity with no more sin!! Yippy!
    Cheers,
    Suzanne

    1. Thank you so much, Suzanne! God gave us free will, fully knowing that most of us would completely squander it. However, he allows us to have it because he loves us, wants us to enjoy his beautiful creation (this world), and wants to see who truly will repent of their sins, believe in and turn to him through Jesus Christ, and inherit the Kingdom of Heaven in the end. Some of us don’t have the sense of a straw, so I fully understand not wanting us to have free will sometimes. Haha God wins in the end, though (Hallelujah!)! God bless you!

  14. Thank you so much. You surely made the reading Bible more fun. Your way of telling Bible stories make this more exciting.
    I like a story that has a strong moral behind this, and this is definitely something we can teach kids.

    1. Thank you so much, Neel! I love Jesus Christ, love to laugh, and love people-why not combine all three for the glory of God? Haha. I want learning about Jesus Christ and the Bible to be as fun, enjoyable, understandable, and relatable as possible, for children and adults alike. I’m so happy that you enjoyed my story! God bless you!

  15. I really love this story. I think it’s good to share with children before sleep. If I was the kid, I would love to have such good story to be told before sleeping, so that I would understand more about Jesus. Also, I mentioned that there has a lot more things we can learn from this story. Hope we will have more this kind of story to read in future!

    Have a nice day,
    Ling

    1. Thank you so much, Ling! I love Jesus Christ, love to laugh, and love people-why not combine all three for the glory of God? Haha. I want learning about Jesus Christ and the Bible to be as fun, enjoyable, relatable, and understandable as possible, for children and adults alike. I’m so happy that you enjoyed my story! I will definitely keep them coming! God bless you!
