Adam and Eve

Genesis 2: 5-25, 3

Adam and Eve lived in the beautiful Garden of Eden. It had many pretty trees and flowers.

While Adam and Eve were living in the Garden of Eden, they could talk with God and hear God's voice speaking to them.

God gave them everything they needed but gave them one command, to NOT eat the fruit from one special tree in the garden. Sometimes people do not believe that what God gives them is enough.

Satan in the form of a serpent tempted Eve. He told Eve she could be like God! She would know the difference between good and evil. He said she would not die if she ate the fruit God told her not to eat. He LIED!!

Eve loved pretty things and the special tree was one of the most beautiful trees in the garden. She knew she was not supposed to even touch the tree….. but the fruit looked and smelled so good.

She thought that she could enjoy some delicious fruit and get wise at the same time. Eve could not resist the fruit. She picked and ate some of the fruit and convinced Adam o eat some of the fruit with her. They disobeyed God!!

When Adam and Eve ate the fruit, their eyes were opened and they could tell the difference between good and evil. They could no longer live in this beautiful garden, their wonderful home because of what they had done.

So Adam and his wife went out into the world to live and to work. But now that they were out in the world, they could no longer talk with God freely as they did before.
