The Story of Us: Character Development: A Man's Dilemma

Published on 06/20/2010
The father factor in The Story of Us is more significant than we realize. This means we must confront the sin struggles of our fathers. We tend to think of sin in terms of commission: here are the things that I have done wrong—the sins I have committed. However, the Bible also speaks of sins of omission—where we do nothing even after God has called us to action. Adam, our first father, sinned in this way. Even today this continues to be a sin struggle for men as husbands and fathers. We cannot be content in allowing ourselves – as well as others under our influence – to be negatively impacted by the affects of our passivity.
