DAY 47

In Genesis, we're told about two special trees in the Garden of Eden.
Gen 2:9
9... the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Gen 2:16-17

16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

I have always wondered how Adam could have been so foolish to neglect the Tree of Life and be duped into eating from the Tree of knowledge of good and evil.

But then that is the story of mankind. We desire to be like God, no make that to be god. And we are not equipped to handle it. Like the Lord says - it will kill you. There is only one God.

Everyday, and in every choice, we can consider which tree are we going to eat from. Are we seeking the Lord, going to Him in all matters? For He knows all things and holds all things together.

Or do we reason in our own minds that we know what is best, this way looks right, or in judgment condemn our brothers and sisters with our form of religious legalism?

Today, choose from the Tree of Life.
