Throughout the history of mankind, women have managed to influence man’s behavior and decisions. Beginning with Adam and Eve, Eve influenced and convinced Adam to disobey God. Here we see Adam a man that was given authority to rule the entire earth. God gave him complete control over everything and commanded him to not eat of the “Tree of the knowledge of good and evil” and told him that if he did, he would surely die.
Adam having all authority on earth backed by the full power and authority of God, forfeited all that, at the simple request of a woman. She did not put a gun to his head, she did not issue terrorist threats, she did not bribe him with money or come with an army to force him to submit to her will. She just simply influenced him to sin as she had done by convincing him to do what God had forbidden. Wow! That is some serious power. No guns no bombs no nothing…just a simple “honey do this for me OK baby”. Adam didn’t argue or give any resistance.
Now which of Eve’s power tools do you think she used to cause Adam to forfeit his authority over the whole entire earth? Considering the fact that they both were already naked and Eve’s body was masterfully sculpted, she no doubt commanded Adam’s full and undivided attention in more ways than one. Eve had determined that she was not going down by herself. She made sure that if she had to do the time for the crime, she was going to have company. For that moment, Adam forgot about what was at stake and that was his mistake.
So we see, in the very first story about a relationship between a man and a woman, the woman had extraordinary power to convince her man to forfeit his kingdom and be evicted from his paradise oasis. Adam obviously was not thinking with the right head.
The lesson here to be learned is: Ladies, though you possess extraordinary power, use your power wisely and responsibly. Though Eve got her man to do what she wanted him to do, it caused them both to lose-out on all the wonderful benefits they were enjoying and in its place they received a curse. This was like living in Beverly Hills with unlimited resources then being exiled to Compton and forced to get a minimum wage job for the rest of your life.
Here is wisdom…don’t be deceived into using your power to do some smart/dumb stuff. Smart/dumb stuff is when you do something thinking it is smart, but looking at it in retrospect, you clearly see that it was in actuality…dumb.
