Text: Genesis 3:8-14.
‘But the LORD God called to the man and said to him, “where are you?”’ (verse 9). Much as Eve was the one who sinned first, God called Adam first to give an account of what had happened as the leader in that family.
You realise it was after the sin had been committed, but before Genesis 3:16 where Eve is told that, “he shall rule over you” that some have misinterpreted this as being the origin of male leadership in the family.
Reflect on verse 9, why do you think God asked Adam first? “Where are you,” do you think God could not see them? In your relationship with God, where are you?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, forgive me for all the wrong things l have done. You know me very well and there is nothing l can hide from You. Thank You for forgiving me. Amen.
