Who are you listening to?

I just finished reading through the New Testament and now I’m back around to the Old. I was reading one of my favorite OT stories ever…the creation of man/woman and the first sin! I love that story. Not because they sinned, but because it tells so much about God, us and our roots.

One of my favorite lines in the Bible comes in Genesis 3:17 when God is handing out the “discipline” for Adam and Eve’s sin. God says to Adam:

“Because you listened to your wife…”

It appears man’s very first mistake was listening to his wife. (Haha) I love that line. It will preach! But this time God spoke something different to me. This time I saw it from a failed leadership perspective. Adam’s first sin was not only disobedience to God but also a failure to lead his family.

God has called men to be leaders in the home. To lead their wives and families in the right direction. When Eve took the fruit and ate it, the Bible says that she also gave some to her husband, WHO WAS WITH HER. Adam was with his wife and not only did he go along with her sinful snack but he didn’t try to stop her. He was a follower…not a leader.

A leader is someone who is not afraid to stand up for what is right. If Adam were truly leading his wife, then he should have stopped Eve from ever taking the first bite. I want to be that kind of leader. One who knows that if I don’t speak up…something bad might happen.

When you see someone about to engage in something sinful (which is quite harmful to us), do you say something or do you passively let it go?
