Adam and Eve


Can I tell you now why I took that fruit? No. I knew it was wrong. I knew that God said not to eat it. But yet, the deed was already done. Eve had done it. I could not believe she had gone against what God has said not to do. Why? Then she tells me that the serpent told her to do it. Really? You are going to believe an animal over God? Really? At first I was really upset with her. Then she tells me how good and juicy it was. That fruit really did look good. Well, maybe just a taste. Oh, how I wish I had not done that. Yes, the taste was good, but….. I felt so ashamed. I had never felt that before. I did not sense God anymore. The peace that was in the Garden was gone. Why did I do it?

Now we are banished from the Garden to never return. The ground is not as vibrant as it once was. The beauty that I used to behold is gone. I tried to go back to the Garden, but God had placed His guards there. No way to return. Oh, how I miss the Garden. I also miss walking with God every day.

Every time I look at Eve I get upset. Why did she do that? But I also didn’t have to take that fruit from her, so part of the blame comes to me. I am trying to forgive her. That is easier that forgiving myself.

Do we struggle with some sort of sin that separates us from God? Forgiveness is the key. May we all be known as forgivers.

Genesis 3:6
6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
