Where Are You? Part III
by Clarence Boyd on September 19th, 2016

​There are some things that every man should know! One revelation is recorded in Gen. 3:6, 7 “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.” It must be discerned that when the woman ate of the forbidden fruit nothing happened. However, as soon as the man ate of the same fruit, everything changed. The revelation for every man is that whatever you do; whatever decision you make has the potential of changing everything. This is why men need to know where they are and its impact upon everything that are associated to. This is also the reason why every man should know that he is accountable to God not only for his decision, but for those he shares the decision with. Adam was responsible for his wife with the expectation that he was to lead as opposed to being led. This is not meant to mean that women are not leaders, but rather that they are not to alter the response of a man to themselves as opposed to his responding to God. For the first time Adam followed the voice of his wife as his source as opposed to God.  This became the very foundation of The Lord for pronouncing a curse upon the man. “To Adam He said, because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, You must not eat of it” (Gen. 3:17). May every man consider seriously this awesome responsibility and not take for granted his accountability for whatever response he makes?
