The Woman Who had Everything

Eve wasn’t made from dust like Adam.

God used flesh and bone to design Eve perfectly.  She was a spectacular finesse of humanity and femininity, hand-crafted by the Lord. She had the perfect body, perfect hair and perfect complexion. Eve had the perfect husband who was selected for her by God. She had the perfect home and perfect life.

What more could she possibly want?

“When the woman saw that the tree was good for food,” She wanted to try it, taste it, and see how delicious it was.

But why risk losing the perfect existence for something that she might not enjoy?

“She saw that is was pleasant to the eyes.”    The forbidden fruit appealed to her.

“And a tree to be desired to make one wise.”  Why did she need to be shrewd, when she lived in a perfect world and never needed to make a decision?

She had it all, but wanted more.

When faced with a choice of doing right or wrong, we chose wrong.

Eve took of the fruit and did eat, and gave also to her husband who was with her.”  (Genesis 3:6)

Of her own free will, she took of the fruit. Satan tempts all of us, but he can’t force us to do something. Adam and Eve were created perfect with a free will. They chose to sin.

God could have made us all robots to love and follow Him, but instead he gave us a free will to chose.

Will you chose Him?
