Anyway, this morning I took notice of Eve's response to God - after being expelled from Eden, told of the ramifications of her sinful choices, I read in Genesis 4:1, "Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, 'With the help of the LORD I have brought forth a man.'" And then later in the chapter, in verse 25, I read, "Adam lay with his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth, saying, 'God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him.'"
Instead of blaming God, she praised God!
I was quite humbled when I realized this. I have shared in past posts about how I became angry with God during trying times. There are many examples in the Bible of showing better responses than the one I had, and now I can add Eve to that list. Although, she has been on God's list all along.
So, Lord Jesus, please pass on this message from me:
Dear Eve, please accept my apology for holding your sin against you. Thank you for being an example of humility and grace. I hope that in the years to come when I face more challenges, I will exhibit the same attitude of praise to God that you did.
