What do we do when life blindsides us? Samson, called by God, once possessed potential to be the most powerful judge Israel had ever seen. Yet, one bad decision led to another, and at the end of his story, he is bound up, blinded, and made into a mockery in front of his enemies. Not only was his physical vision taken, but also his internal purpose was robbed. Sucker-punched and humiliated, the rug was pulled.
