Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin-coverings. And they heard the sound of Adonai Elohim (the Lord God) going to and fro in the garden in the wind of the day. So the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Adonai Elohim in the midst of the Tree of the garden. (TLV) Genesis 3:7-8 Nosh: Adam and Eve made the disastrous choice to disobey God and eat of the forbidden fruit, thus introducing the sin of rebellion into their previously innocent lives. Sin, like rust on metal, is a corrosive and destructive force. Not unlike Adam and Eve, when we make sinful choices, those choices can permanently damage and negatively alter our life trajectory. To the degree that we make choices consistent with God’s Word, we will eliminate those harmful consequences and enjoy God’s favor and blessed partnership throughout life.
