Have you ever thought of creating scenes from the story of Samson with LEGOs? Samson was definitely an interesting man from the book of Judges. His hair was extremely long, and for some reason the length of his hair had something to do with his incredible strength. Never has a man existed with more strength than Samson.
Maybe the reason why his strength left him when Delilah betrayed him by cutting off his hair–maybe the reason he was no longer strong was because God had commanded him not to cut his hair, and cutting off his hair was an act of rebellion to God.
I find it interesting that God chose such a womanizer for a judge. It seems like he kept falling in love with women who were not God’s people. He reaped the consequences for His sin.
So we made a LEGO Samson scene by starting with a green LEGO base. The building and pillars were made from white LEGOs, and my son set Samson right in the middle of the center pillars. The other LEGO men are walking around as if they were at a party.
This is the final scene of Samson’s life, after his enemies had gouged out his eyes as a result of Delilah’s betrayal. They made sport of him at a banquet hall, and they set him beside two posts that apparently held up the whole building. He asked God for strength one last time, and he was able to push down the pillars and destroy more of God’s enemies with that moment than all the rest of his life combined.
