Genesis 3:6 GW The woman saw that the tree had fruit that was good to eat, nice to look at, and desirable for making someone wise. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
The pattern doesn't change. We put ourselves in proximity of temptation, linger a bit too long, listen and let the voice of evil twist our thoughts and often, not only choose to do wrong, but also take others down with us.
We have not excuse. We choose evil over good. Only in God's protecting power can we choose to run from temptation--regardless of who dangles that tempting carrot of wrong--coveting, cheating, lying, sex, and murder of reputation and feelings, if not the body.
The worst of all is turning away from the one who loves us enough to be there to help when those choices come.
The result of wrong choices is also the same--fear.
V. 10 He answered, "I heard you in the garden. I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid."
The answer is forgiveness in and following Christ.
