Dear Adam: An Open Letter to the First Man

 

Kris WolfeDear Adam,

I can’t imagine what it is like to be a guy! What a load of responsibility (Genesis 3.17-19)! But I’m not going to lie, I feel like you could’ve done so much better. There’s a time to be laid-back and there’s a time to take action. That was an action time. You were supposed to co-rule with Eve, not give into sin.

I wish you would have been the voice of reason. Instead, you blamed her for your part in the sin, but that was a part of the curse that began with the sin (Genesis 3.12).
