Deep Thought

My devotions this morning –

“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.” Genesis 3:6

Satan gets us to concentrate on the temptation instead of God. ~ Gladys M. Hunt

I found that statement to be deep. Just now, as I was typing the verse in, I realized something else. I always thought that Eve was alone – that she took the fruit back to Adam and talked him into eating it. But here it says her husband was with her. So that whole “Eve did it” argument is moot!! He was right there – he could have stopped her. Another reason the second Adam had to come. 🙂 I’m so glad He did!!

** just a note – Jeff said that Adam wasn’t “right there with her”, but that when they said “with her” they meant “around” or because they were married. So ignore my whole schpeel about Adam being with her when she took the fruit.
