God Holds The Husband Responsible For His family

Adam — the first man in the world who was in a relationship. Adam was alone. He wanted a wife. He asked God for a wife and God created Eve to be an “ezer k’negdo” — a helper opposing him or a helper against him (Genesis, 2:18).

A helper against him? What in the world does that mean? I looked in the commentary at the bottom of the page which quoted the Talmud, “If the man is worthy, the woman will be his helper; if he is not worthy, she will be against him.”

If a man works on himself and develops himself to be worthy, the woman will be his partner. If he doesn’t, she will be against him. The message: It’s up to the man to make it work. It’s his responsibility. Stop blaming others. If a man works on himself and develops himself to be worthy, the woman will be his partner. If he doesn’t, she will be against him.

What happens next in the world’s first relationship? Adam and Eve are in the Garden of Eden. They have one commandment: Don’t eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge.

Eve eats it and then she gives it to Adam. He eats it. Then Adam hides in the bushes and God asks him: Adam did you eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge that I commanded you not to eat?

What did Adam do? Did he take responsibility for what happened?

No. He says to God, “The woman you sent me gave it to me and I ate it.”

I couldn’t believe it. He gave in to something he knew was wrong and then he blamed his wife. I thought only men today did that.

Does blaming his wife help Adam avoid responsibility? God doesn’t say, “Adam, I understand — she pushed you into it. You’re not responsible for what happened.” Nope! Just the opposite. He punishes Adam for eating the fruit, and for not using his own judgment. I think it’s significant that one of the first lessons in the first chapter of Genesis is about what a man should be in a relationship.

I discovered a lot of timeless wisdom that for generations fathers taught their sons — wisdom that is so relevant today. Today’s absent father, either from long hours of work or divorce, means many boys grow up without a strong male role model.

  1. excellent .. thanks.

  2. I read this and its a bunch of nonsense. Fist of all Adam did not ask God for a wife. God said: man shall not be alone and He gave Adam a helper. And second no man or woman has to be worthy to be treated with respect or for you to be with them or against them. We as Christians love without thinking weather a man or a woman is worthy or not. There is more about this subject, but I think this is enough said because if you can’t handle the milk how can I give you the meat and mystery of marriage.
