Adam

His name was Adam. The first person ever created by God. His home was a beautiful garden with food to eat, rivers for him to drink from and the animals and Eve to be his companions.

And as with everything God gives us, there was a catch. He could eat of every tree, except the one in the middle. In fact, he wasn’t even to touch it.

But then the serpent got Adam’s wife alone and said, “Did God really tell you not to eat of this tree?”

The devil has been using the “Did God really tell you...” line on Believers for centuries. It worked then, and it still works today. Then he laid out all the benefits of eating the fruit–it would make her wise, she would know what is good and what is bad.

The more Eve focused on the fruit the more beautiful it looked. The more she focused on the fruit, the more she imagined what it would taste like. She thought about what it would be like to be wise.

In her mind, she had already committed the sin because where your mind goes, your body will follow.

She gave the fruit to her husband, and he ate also.

Why did he eat also? From what I’ve read, he didn’t hear the serpent’s speech. I didn’t read that Eve begged him to eat the fruit or gave him the same spiel that the serpent gave her. I don’t see where she tied him down and forced him to eat the fruit.

He ate it of his own free will. He could have said “no” just as we can when temptation comes our way.

But most of the time, just like Adam, we would rather go with the crowd and get in trouble than to do what is right.

Just like Adam, we will suffer the consequences for our actions. God kicked Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden because they gave into temptation. He made Adam work the land, and He made Eve have pain in childbirth. Their days of rest and tranquility were over.

Choose to do what is right, and good things will come your way. Choose to do what is wrong, and bad things will come your way. The choice is yours.
