In our community – A Thought for Today

By Missionary Ernestine Kennedy

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat from any tree in the garden?”

The woman said to the serpent, we may eat fruit from trees in the garden, but God did say you must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.” The serpent said to the woman “You will not surely die, for God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God knowing good and evil.”

When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, and he did eat. Then their eyes were opened, and they realized they were naked, so they sewed fig leaves together and made covering for them. Read gen 3: 1-7.

Satan is still spreading his lies all around. He wants you to go against every thing God has said.
