Judge Not

When Eve was tempted by evil or error to partake of the fruit of the tree of  “good and evil”, she and Adam had every thing they needed, but that wasn’t enough.  She wanted to be able to judge!  Even today, the thought of judging is often so seductive that we are willing to give up our peace in order to have a human opinion and voice that opinion.  Shakespeare said, “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”  And God said in Genesis 3:2-4, “The woman said to the serpent, ‘We may eat fruit from the 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.’   You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman.

There are so many times we want to focus on what we do not have rather than on what we do have.  Isn’t that what Eve did and that removed her joy and peace?   Today I will focus on gratitude and humility and that should keep me busy!

  1. Good day, Becky!

    Thanks for helping me to understand more Eve’s lesson of judgement. It is so easy to focus on what we don’t have and boy it manifests itself in so many ways. It is WAY EASIER to turn to God to see what we already have — peace, joy, happiness, supply — and that ugly judgement will just slither away.

    Much love and gratitude in sharing your inspired thoughts with us all!
