I'm looking forward to seeing God make our relationships stronger!
Genesis 3:1-6 “Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild
animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, ‘Did
God really say, “You must not eat from any tree in the garden”?’ 2 The
woman said to the serpent, ‘We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that
is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.”’ 4 ‘You
will not certainly die,’ the serpent said to the woman. 5 ‘For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be
opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’ 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.”

of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the
man, ‘Where are you?’ 10 He
answered, ‘I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.’”
“I delight greatly
in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with
garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.”
A broken habit of blame
arises from sin.
Genesis 3:11-13 “11 And he said, ‘Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I
commanded you not to eat from?” 12 The man said, ‘The woman you put here with
me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.’ 13 Then the Lord God said to the
woman, ‘What is this you have done?’ The woman said,
‘The serpent deceived me, and I ate.’”
Sin has distorted and
magnified the sense of self, creating isolation and identity-crisis.

become the mother of all the living.”
“Male and female created he them;
and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were
Genesis 3:16 “To the
woman he said, ‘I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to
children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”
