Genesis 3:6-11 (NLT)
6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. 7 At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves. 8 When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God among the trees. 9 Then the Lord God called to the man, �Where are you?� 10 He replied, �I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked.� 11 �Who told you that you were naked?� the Lord God asked. �Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?�

These verses describe the fall of man to sin. Adam and Eve took it upon themselves to disobey God by eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Suddenly they were aware of what was considered evil and what might be considered good. Feeling shame they felt it good to create clothing for them and hide their sinful act from God.

Up until the point where man fell to sin Adam had walked in the cool mist of the garden with God. Adam had listened to God�s words and followed God�s desires. Adam was asked to name all the animals of the world and he did so without hesitation. But now both Adam and Eve could see what was considered good and what was considered evil. They knew their act of disobeying God and eating from the tree he commanded them not to eat from was wrong. They felt shame for the first time because of their sinful act. They felt their nakedness to the world. For the first time man attempted to act on good by clothing himself and hiding their shame from God even though God had walked with them many times as they were naked. Adam and Eve were attempting good apart from God. They thought their actions to be good would cover the shame of their sin. Unfortunately we still do the same today. When we sin and feel the shame of our sin we try doing something good thinking it will please God when what God wanted was for us to walk with Him and learn from Him. Yet we have chosen to learn our own way forsaking the desires of God for what is right and what is wrong. Pray and ask God to show you what is truly good that you may be able to follow His will and desire for your life.
