In the beginning, man and woman were tempted by the devil. During this temptation, Adam has the opportunity to defend Eve and God’s creation. Instead of stepping into this role, Adam stood by and was silent. Men (and women) face the same temptation today–to watch the world and everything happening go by. Whether your role is employee, manager, husband, or father (or a combination of these), God has designed you to defend. How do we defend? We make the decision to show up and be present, we realize everyone has different emotional needs, and we are prepared to lead spiritually.
