“DO NOT EAT OF THE TREE OF GOOD AND EVIL!” Why? What is good and what is evil? I truly believe that the tree of life gave forth a never ending spring of love and kindness. It produced in Adam and Eve all the fruits of the spirit. However the tree of good and evil produced in them the instant feeling of separation from each other. “I am better than you.” “You are wrong and I am right.” It produced the feeling of blame, shame and hatred. Only after that tree did they see themselves as different. Only after that tree did they point the finger. How often do you eat from the tree of good and evil? Each time you see differences. Each time you judge another. Each time you place blame. Every time you form hatred instead of love. That is when you have tasted its’ fruit. The evil one will tell you it’s alright, just as he did to Eve. Jesus in his life said “live from the fruit of the tree of life”. Eat of the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. That is the only way you will truly live… in the flow of the garden. Then, you will find God… walking beside you. Galatians 5:22
I Love You!
