Week Three – Make Good Choices - Eve
By Carri Pratt
Eve had the incredible honor of being the first woman created by God. Of course there are pros and cons to this.
As the very first woman she had no female role models. She had no Titus2Women in her circle to share truth and provide accountability.
If you were a first born female child in your family like I was, you probably experienced the “princess zone” and felt like the universe revolved around you. (I know I did) Surely Eve felt the power of being a female.
The downfall comes when you elevate yourself above God. When Eve learned from Satan that she could be even more powerful; her flesh longed for what she did not have and she was tempted to disobey her loving Father God.
If only Eve had known that tricky little snake was leading her down the wrong path. The consequences of her choice was that she was separated from her “good thing”, her relationship with the Lord.
Choices can do the same to us. No matter how tempting, yummy and delicious a choice might look on the outside, much like Eve’s apple, it just might be full of worms.
God has given us comfortable guidelines to follow to ensure success in making good choices:
· The 10 Commandments Exodus 20
· The Most Important Command: “Love the Lord Your God with all your heart.” Deuteronomy 6:5
· Investment Advice: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Matthew 6:19-20
