  1. Read Judges 15:1-20. How does the Philistine solution end up being their demise?
  2. Consider the men of Judah’s response in verse 11. What does this response reveal about their spiritual state? Why is assimilation into the surrounding culture so attractive for churches, and for individual believers? How do you feel that pressure in your life?
  3. How can someone so gifted and empowered by the Holy Spirit be so immature in spiritual fruit?
  4. Evaluate Samson’s prayer in verse 18. How is one’s prayer life a test of spiritual health?
