“يعتقد الكثيرون أن قصّة شمشون تنتهي نهاية مأساوية, لكني لا أراها كذلك. فبرغم أنه أصبح كفيفاً وسجيناً إلا أن شعر رأسه بدأ ينمو من جديد. عفا الرب عن شمشون واستخدمه للمرة الأخيرة. هدم البطل معبد الفلسطينيين فقتل نفسه مع أعدائه. أدرك شمشون بوضوح ما ينبغي على كل إنسان أن يعرفه: أن ربّنا هو رب الفرصة الثانية والثالثة والرابعة هو الربّ الذي لا ييأس منك أبداً” 1 likes
