A Lot Like Eve By Kathy Harris

 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. ~ Genesis 3:6 KJV
“I didn’t eat that apple, so why am I being punished?”
Is there a woman in the modern world who hasn’t made such an offhanded remark on occasion? It usually brings a smile or a “you got that right” from the other women in the room. Myself included.
And, if you’re like me, you’ve often pondered how one woman’s sin could affect the rest of us so dearly. How one afternoon snack—chosen from the wrong tree—could have so much impact several millennia later.
When we look back on Eve’s decision, it’s difficult to understand why she knowingly went against God’s instruction. I mean, hey, if God told you or me not to do something, we wouldn’t do it. Right?
Well, therein lies the point. Upon closer inspection, we’re all a lot like Eve.
Anytime we rebel against God, or His laws, aren’t we taking a bite from that same apple? Each time we step out on our own, instead of waiting for God’s direction, we’re heading down a road that will surely lead to “knowledge.” But it may be something we really don’t care to learn. The school of hard knocks can teach us a lot, but it can leave us with bumps and bruises and maybe a few lifelong scars.
Life is full of decisions. Sometimes we make the wrong one. In The Road to Mercy, Bethany Harrison must live with a choice she made years ago. One she now regrets. One that could destroy her marriage. One for which she’s never forgiven herself.
The Good News is that despite our mistakes—no matter what they are—God will welcome us back with open arms. And just like Eve—or Bethany, we can find redemption through His mercy.

Have you ever dared to hope you could find God’s forgiveness?
Even when you can’t forgive yourself?
