“GOD commanded the Man, “You can eat from any tree in the garden, except from the Tree-of-Knowledge-of-Good-and-Evil. Don’t eat from it. The moment you eat from that tree, you’re dead.” (Gen 2:16)
GOD wasn’t talking about dying ‘physically’ from knowing good and evil – He was telling us that we die when we become "our own gods" and try and figure everything out for ourselves…!
Let me explain - I was part of a CI (Continuous Improvement) Project at work that dragged on right on up to the evening in the restaurant. Buzzwords were flying everywhere, and it was all about “… the identification, evaluation and prioritisation of risks by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimise, monitor and control the probability of the impact of unfortunate events and maximise the realisation of opportunities…”!
I reviewed my scribbled notes later on, which simply stated: our Lord Jesus wants to do this for each one of us every second of every day – if only we’ll stop trying to be our own gods and begin to trust him!
