Scientifically, a man is the male gender of the ‘homo sapiens’ specie in the ‘homo’ genus. A man has distinct features from the female version of homo sapiens (woman). He is stronger, more aggressive, wilder and inclined to use logical reasoning as opposed to woman who uses more of intuitive reasoning.
According to the Bible, the man was created first and placed in the garden of Eden to tender it. To prevent loneliness and being overburdened, God made the man an helpmeet called the woman. The man upon creation was given a responsibility to dress and keep the Garden.
Essentially, man is a creature of responsibilities, and all men have one garden or the other to dress and keep. The garden could be your family, your community, your unit at your place of work, your state, or province, or region or nation.
If you are a man, you are responsible to keep your own garden. It is therefore important to understand this critical role of keeping, maintaining and fostering the growth of the garden.
It is equally important to understand that being a man is more than having a six pack figure, more than wearing fancy looking beards or hair, more than wearing the latest designer or driving the latest car, more than having strings of women under your control. Being a man is responsibility and that responsibility is enormous.
In this series, we will look at who qualifies to be a man, the man as a Gardener, his garden and how he is to relate with his Creator and the woman.
After this series, we will do same study on the woman, and at the end of it all, my hope is that we will all understand our roles better and become more responsible.
Have a great week ahead.
