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
God loves family, and He established a model since the beginning of creation, by making man responsible for Eden: of taking care, working and protecting it. That is, the burden was on Adam and not Eve, which is why the warning of not eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was given to the man. But things have changed, and today we can see that this design has disappeared from many homes, where the woman has taken on this responsibility in view of her husband’s indifference of not taking on the position God granted him when he was created.
Each home represents an Eden. In Hebrew, Eden means delight. It is a place of peace, harmony, joy. But when man renounces his obligations, he has destroyed his Eden and turned it into a place of quarrels, nonconformity and sin for not wanting to take on the call for being the priest. When this does not come to pass, there is a distortion in the spiritual world which affects directly in the natural.
For this reason, we see so many homes being destroyed. Homes which could be enjoying the blessings from God are in crisis, submerged in despair, for not laying down their hearts to change. But, even if the man has not become aware of this, the woman cannot settle and she must seek the Lord wholeheartedly, for Him to intervene immediately and reveal to the man what his position is.
Let us cry out for the order of God to be established in our home so we can enjoy, along with our children, the Eden our heavenly Father gave us.
