THE STORY OF SAMSON AND DELILAH is a potent biblical example of what human-kind has seen throughout history:  the power of a woman for good or for evil in the life of a man.  Samson could easily defeat an army of enemy warriors, but he surrendered meekly to the charms of one woman.

A woman’s power over men has not lessened since biblical days.  Today, the advertising industry exploits this power in order to sell everything from cars to toothpaste.  Magazines, billboards, posters, ad store windows use attractive women, seductive women, and blatant sexual images to catch a man’s glance and capture his attention (and, they hope, his wallet).

Female attraction can be deadly.  But death was not our Designer’s intention!  He designed feminine power to give life.  He created Eve to complete her man, to nurture life in him and to create new life through bearing children.

Many wives do not understand how profound their feminine power is.  God has blessed you with an extraordinary, ability that you can use for great good in your husband’s life.  Your power can meet his aloneness and his companionship needs, affirm his sexual identity, protect him from temptation, and keep him for life.  Use it well.
