It seems a peculiar but yet, simple matter, choosing between two trees.
To eat the fruit from the Tree of Life or that from
the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
Wouldn’t everyone have readily chosen Life over Knowledge?
Sadly, our daily experiences inform us otherwise as we regularly trade life giving opportunities in exchange for chances to draw flawed and often uncharitable judgements about God and our neighbour.
Suddenly, the dreadful choice made by Adam and Eve which we have often bemoaned for our fall, becomes ours too.
Our original sin.
“Out of the ground the LORD God made grow every tree that was delightful to look at and good for food, with the tree of life in the middle of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”
~ Genesis 2:9
