We live in a male dominated world. Right? WRONG. We live in a male EGO dominated world! Men in search of power and control, but as soon as the going gets tough they back out and look for something or some one to blame. And woman pay the price!
Where did it all start? Well at the start of course! Paradise! Adam and Eve! So we all know that Eve was the one who ate the forbidden fruit first. But what actually happened there? Adam was there all the time and Eve gave to him standing by her. And the result was knowledge of good and evil.
Now had Adam been a real man he would have protected his wife and told the serpent to take a hike, however he just stood by and allowed the serpent to mislead his wife. And when she gave him some of the fruit, again he did not object.
When God confronted Adam, what did he do!? He blamed Eve! And since then the world has been a broken place.
Eve has been walking around wounded and ashamed and Adam has been trying to be the main peanut in the pack without enough backbone to support his jellyfish cowardly existence.
Had Adam protected Eve as he should’ve, or even after not protecting her as he should’ve he owned up and taken responsibility when confronted by God, the world would have been a different place.
Lucky for us about 2000 years ago the Greatest Teacher, a carpenter from Galilee, our Saviour came along and showed us what a real man is. So we need to find our way to Jesus and be a real man who loves unconditionally, forgive unendingly and show the same undeserved mercy and grace that we all receive from God.
We need to be the men that our wives need! The men that will protect them, love them unconditionally, make them feel wanted, make them feel special, make them feel whole! And what is more is that we need to be these men to our first and own wives. Don’t leave your wife when the going gets tough! Especially not for another man’s wife! (And that is a hole discussion on its own!) Dig in, show some strength, show some backbone and be the man your wife and children need!
We need to be the fathers our sons and daughters need. The fathers who raise our children to be the next generation of strong families.
We need to be the men that society needs! The men who owns up to their responsibilities and make the world a better place. Society’s strength lies in strong families and we men are responsible for that.
“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.”
1 Corinthians 13:11
