Today is Wednesday, 6 April in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of Mathew 18:4.
Therefore, whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.Mathew 18:4.
Some people always propose that it is the sin of pride that Adam and Eve committed in the garden.
But when you can observe your little ones who play around naked and the ones who knows how to dress; see which one of them knows what pride is.
Therefore, Adam and Eve might have become greedy and proud after their fall; but before then there is no way pride would have been found in them.
All they knew was that God, their Father; had put everything in place for them and whatever they need they just have to reach out and grab it.
All on the condition that they stay subjected to the ruler ship of their creator.
A simple illustration of this fact can be seen in a parent and child relationship.
From birth the child has to depend on the parent for everything; food, clothes, where to live etc.
In other words, the child does not have to work in order to earn a living; neither must he fend for himself since his sole dependency is on his parents.
But someday this same child must also become a parent.
And once this happens, the child, who is now a parent, will move out of his own parent’s house; since he is not to depend on them anymore.
He is now responsible for whosoever is his own child; and must provide for his child same as his parent provided for him.
This is exactly what transpired between God and our first parents.
Initially it wasn’t supposed to be that way, if only Adam and Eve would have obeyed Him and continue to remain naked and not ashamed.
But because they tasted of the fruit, their eyes opened and they became like God they wanted to be (i.e. they were set to play the parental role)
On discovering this, God had no option than to pursue them from His home (the Garden of Eden).
