Topic: If I had just listen to momma and daddy……..
After watching that video I saw myself in that video as a teen. I remember wanting to experience the world on my own. I remember my mother saying, “Son I just don’t want you to experience the pain I have experienced.” I would say mom that’s the only way I can learn. I remember when I experienced my first heart break. The first person I called was my mother. I didn’t realize how painful life was. I remember a song that was hit in my day. It was my mommas favorite song. It was called mamma used to say by an artist named Junior. Listen to the lyrics Mama used to say, Take your time, young man, Mama used to say, Don't you rush to get old,Mama used to say, Take it in your stride,Mama used to say, Live your life. I see it was your momma favorite song also. Youth Has there been a time in your life where you had found yourself in so bad that you wished you had never gotten yourself into? It was a situation that you could have’s avoided altogether because it was a situation that you had no business involved in the first place. It was a situation that had all the warning signs and all the red flags waving before your very eyes, but you chose to ignore the warning signs and the red flags as warnings. And at the end of the situation, you found yourself saying these words to yourself:
“If I had just listen to momma…..”
“If I had just paid attention to what my parents were trying to tell me back then……”
“If I had just did what daddy had told me to do…..”
Now let me talk to the adults have you ever found yourself saying… “If I had just listen, I would not be in this trouble, I would not be broke and homeless, I would not have dropped out of high school or college, I would not been pregnant out of wedlock, I would not been expelled out of school, I would not have been fired from my job……… If I had just listen to my momma or if I had just listened to my daddy………
The bible does tell us in Exodus 20:12 to “Honor thy father and mother that the days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. And in Ephesians 6;1-3 says, “Children obey your parents in the Lord; for this is right. Honor thy father and mother, which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee and thou mayest live long upon the earth.

In this message, we are going to learn about a man who could have said the same thing If I just listened to my parents; if he had just paid attention to what his momma and daddy was trying to tell him to do; if he had just did what his momma and daddy had told him to do, he would have had a happy ending to his life story. But instead he had a sad ending to his life story. His days were cut short. In other words he died too soon. And this man that I am talking about is Samson.
Samson was known to be one of Judges of Israel. As a Judge of Israel, his main purpose was to deliver Israel out from the bondage of their enemies, which were the Philistines at the time. Also Samson was known to be the strongest man to have ever lived. He was a man who was anointed with extra ordinary strength. The reason why Samson had extra ordinary strength and he was so strong was because of the covenant that he had with the Lord. You see, when Samson was born, he was born as a Nazarite. And as a Nazarite, Samson was not to touch or drink wine, nor was he to have his hair cut because God supplied Samson’s extra ordinary strength through his hair. That’s right Sampson didn’t go to the barbershop and get a taper fade. He didn’t even get Mohawk.
