“The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too.”
Genesis 3:6 NLT
Eve listened to the wrong voice and bought into the lies the serpent fed her. She was convinced God had been holding out on her, and there really was a shortcut to wisdom to be gained by biting into this piece of forbidden fruit. Of course, if the fruit had really made them wise, Adam would have owned up to his disobedience instead of hiding from God, ashamed of his physical and spiritual nakedness.
Are you ducking from the Father, knowing you are not living a life pleasing to Him? He desires to be in relationship with you and welcomes you when you simply come directly to Him and confess.🚦
