Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:8
This verse raises a serious question. Why were the man and woman hiding from the One with whom they had been walking and talking together in the Garden? We would discuss what might have separated Adam and Eve from God – shame, fear, selfishness, envy, arrogance, ingratitude, disobedience, guilt, and sin.
We might go on to consider how these same behaviors so easily appear in our own lives. We would use specific examples from our own days, both parents and children. The conclusion will be that these attitudes and actions also separate us from God. The need for each of us to be reconciled to our Creator is real.
