And to Adam he said,
“Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life;
thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
My question today is who are you listening to? Well Adam blamed the woman, so I guess you can say men have been listening to women since before the fall. That might have been the problem because a woman was made to follow the man not lead him. The woman saw the fruit if she hadn’t been looking at the tree that she wasn’t supposed to eat from and had kept her eyes off of what she wanted then she may not have fallen into sin. We have to be careful what we set our eyes on. God cursed the ground and from there on it would bring forth thorns. Jesus came and wore my curse to a cross for my sins not His, so that I would no longer be under the fall of man, but under the blood of Jesus. If we don’t deal with sin in our life then the sin in my life will be no different than when they ate the fruit on that tree. If we are blaming other’s for what we are doing instead of looking at ourselves how are we any different?
