The Garden (continued from 14 April 2015)

The Garden

Genesis 3:6-7 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.  Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

The point I wish to make today is actually in verse 7, then their eyes were opened. How many times have you read something and someone else says something about what you have read and you didn’t see what they saw at all. Or, it is the same when you look at a scene and miss something that someone else picks up instantly but you missed. I do this quite frequently when I am reading in the bible. One day, I see or understand something I never saw before even though I may have read that certain passage at least 20 times. I wonder just how many thousands upon thousands of years had they been in the garden and had no idea that they were naked. I think it may have something to do with the fact that they were not conscious of self but rather conscience of God and His created garden which they were taking care of.

I have yet another observation in the garden that I want to talk about tomorrow.
