“So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.”  

Genesis 3:6

Today there is no blog on good morning girls.

There was DELIGHT in her EYES, and the DESIRE to be WISE.  Us humans will do about anything to be wiser. Especially if it is as easy as eating a fruit.  I have to admit, that would be a delight in my eyes and a desire.  We all wish that we knew more than we do.  But there are times when our desires are not what God’s desires are.  And did you catch the second half of the verse?  She gave it to her husband!  And he also ate it.  So, since she did wrong she didn’t want to go alone.  It was not just her fault though.  Adam was with her when she ate the fruit.  There is no writing telling us of Adam telling her not to.

 How many times do we blame our spouse for things so we can take the blame off of ourselves?

In verse 12 in chapter 3 Adam told God in the garden that it was the woman’s fault.  Then in verse 13 the woman blamed the serpent.  Our actions that we do without our spouse is just as much the other persons fault.  We are as one.  Genesis 2:24 tells us that once married we leave our parents and become one with our spouse.  So, next time you want to get upset at your spouse for something, think about the whole scenario.  Did you remind your spouse today that you love them?  Did you remind them why you married him/her?  How bout do something spontaneous today!!

Today tell your spouse you are sorry.  I am sure you have done something that struck a nerve.  Think about the day and what you have said or done.  Make sure that you remember; spouse sins=you are sinning also.  Pray for your spouse continuously.
