Beginning Part Two
You are Adam. Everything is good! The Creator of all things, the One who formed you from the dust of the ground is with you at all times. Nothing could be better. What’s there to worry about?
Then, as if out of left field, you hear God say:
From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die. – Genesis 2:16
What’s this? Whoa, this is serious stuff. You have decisions to make. Eat. Don’t eat. Die. Live. All these contrasts. It is a lot to think about.
Then, you hear that something isn’t good. Look, all the animals have a mates. They are male and female. Where’s my counterpart, my helper?
Naming all of the animals is hard work. So, you take a short nap, and when you wake up? WOW! Lord, you hit a home run here. She is beeuuutiful!
Genesis 2 sets the stage for Genesis 3. Adam’s “good life” is about to get a whole lot more complicated.
Maybe you’re asking yourself, “What’s this have to do with me?”
Glad you asked.
Come back tomorrow!
