Should All Try to Finish Well American poet Wadsworth "Great is the g, but greater of ending." King had something sim- say. He said in 7:8, "Better is of a thing than the thereof: and the is better than spirit." When I sports in high , it was evetT player's "start" the game. As on, I found that it the best but it was the that counb that many people but a large per- never finish. As we rthe Bible one certain mind that rathe same characteris- know him as the man in the Bible, young boy opportumti ' needed to end of God. us the story of had all the right but finished in : Someone once guar- .' of success and good not guarantee endings." How could it man with all tools to live right, :SUch a wrong way? In examination of life, several things but allow me attention to three first thing that led to downfall was that a desire that was con- by the things of this had a wander- desire for worldly things, he began his dounafall. We must understand, the things of this world will not satisfy the needs of the heart. Secondly, Samson was calloused by his disrespect for his parents. In Judges 14, we find Samson demanding his father to get the woman from Timnath for his wife. Samson had become so engrossed in this world, it had now turned his heart from his verT own parents. If a young person wants to finish in a wrong way, just let him dis- honor and disobey his par- ents. As my ,zife and I spend time with our oldest son at the football .field, I am appalled at the way some of the children treat their par- ents. It is a shame the disre- spect that some children show their morns and clads. As hard as we may be on the not have anything Israelite he was not to marry out- of the Jews, but so controlled by his J children for their disrespect and disobedience, they are not all the blame. Some par- ents must bear the responsi- bility for the attitudes of their children. I feel a lot of the problem stems from the fact many parents wait too late to begin training their children to respect and obey their authority. Samson did not fin- ish well because he developed a disrespect for his parents. The final thing that hin- dered Samson from living out the call of God for his life is the same problem many a i [q Newnan, GA P III Open Monday - Saturday 11 a.m. till 5:30 p.m. |I Closed Sunday I Christian has today. That is they are careless in their de\\; otiop, f)r lilt: l,ord. Samson had a .pecial call from God. he had made spe- cial vows to the Ixwd, but he was careless in keeping them. Before long, he had broken every one of his Nazarite VOWS. It is great to begin, but it is even greater to finish.
