The Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”

Genesis 3:9

The story of Adam and Eve in Genesis is a perfect example of how we can choose to be passive and not confront others when they are headed down the wrong path. Eve gives Adam a piece of fruit from a tree that God had forbidden them to eat. Adam does not question Eve. instead, he takes and eats the fruit. This is a perfect picture of passivity¬†and not being intentional. A serpent has convinced Eve that it’s okay to eat the forbidden fruit, and Adam goes along with it. Adam never questions Eve about why she is talking to a serpent, how can a serpent talk, or why she went along with what the serpent was telling her. Adam, through his passivity, allowed sin to enter into their lives.

The story in Genesis, about the fall of man, is a perfect illustration of how we allow things to happen in our lives. We often choose to follow what the world says we should do because it’s easier than taking a stand against sin. When we choose passivity over intentionality, we are forsaking the purpose that God has for our lives. God did not call us out of darkness to cower in the light.

Adam had an opportunity to change the destiny of mankind for eternity. Instead, Adam chose to not confront sin. The same thing unfolds every day in each of our lives. We all experience situations that call for us¬†to make decisions to confront or go along with sin. In recovery, we are learning to be intentional in every part of our lives. When we see a brother or sister sliding into darkness, we warn them. They may not listen, but we know we didn’t sit back and allow things to happen. Being intentional is an important aspect of our recoveries and our walk with Christ.
