The Honey, The Lion, and Samson

Samson went with his mother and father to see his future wife. On the way, Samson set out after a lion and killed it, but didn’t tell his parents. When he later returned down that road to hold a feast before his wedding, he saw that same lion’s carcass, only this time it had a swarm of bees in it. Samson took some honey and shared it with his parents along the path, but didn’t tell them where he got the honey.  

What does honey and a lion have to do with the strength of Samson?

Samson’s strength got him noticed. I think he had the strength and willingness to defend his bride if she’d been loyal to him. In my opinion, she should’ve relied on her hero.
