What About the Other Trees

We all remember the disobedience of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. They were told in Genesis 2:16-17: “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Because of their disobedience humanity suffered the consequences of sin. But…. have you ever considered the other trees? God provided them with apples, oranges, pomegranates, olives, avocados, nut trees, trees of every variety! The point is, Adam and Eve focused on what they couldn’t have instead of all the good things that God gave them to enjoy. Are we like that? When we focus on things we don’t have we end up getting ourselves in trouble. Instead, read Philippians 4:8 and praise Him for all he has given. May God always provide you with good things!
