Strength! I thought of Samson immediately. God blessed him to be one of the strongest man of the Bible, even so, he failed at following God’s command and died a horrible death with many others whom he had killed with his God given strength. We are nothing without God, Samson story really showed that clearly, and instead of depending on our strength, even the God given one, we should “seek his presence continually!” (1 Chronicles 16:11)
