STRONG MEN GREAT DADS - A LIFE MANUAL FOR MEN Session #2
Building a plan for how you will conduct your life will help you make wise decisions in the heat of the moment.
The first sin in the Garden of Eden is not what Adam did, but rather what he didn’t do. Adam was supposed to work and guard the Garden. He failed to guard the garden.
His second sin is not what he did, but rather what he didn’t do. He failed to protect his wife. He left her alone with the devil.
A man with wisdom takes care of his home and his family. He is a leader in the home first and the community second. Adam blamed his wife for his own failures. Strong men own the blame. When the blame is not necessarily on their shoulders alone, they still go shoulder-to-shoulder and share the blame. Strong men take responsibility and actively pursue the process of righting the wrong.
“And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.”
Genesis 2:15 KJV
