“And the Angel of the Lord appeared to the woman and said to her, Behold, you are barren and have no children, but you shall become pregnant and bear a son.” Judges 13:3
So here we see one of the more famous judges coming on the scene, Samson. God appeared to his parents through an angel who directed them how to raise Samson so that he could be used by Him. Though Samson’s parents did all that God instructed them to in raising Samson he still made some bad choices.
This helps me see how I did all I could do that the Lord wanted me to in raising my son, but that did not stop him from making bad choices. Neither did how my parents raised me stop me from making bad choices. As parents we can not blame ourselves if we raised our children how the Lord wanted us to and then they took a different direction as adults.
In the end though, God was glorified.
