We have multiple choices in our life every day. I have heard people say over and over, “This is my choice and it has no effect on anyone but me”. WRONG! Big or small choices cause a ripple effect all around you. Our choices either bless or curse!
God placed Adam and Eve into a perfect environment. They were living in Paradise! They would have never experienced death – they were living in eternity! Everything in the Garden was available to them except one particular tree God had asked them not to eat from. (Genesis 2:15-17) Most people know that Satan tempted Eve – Eve tempted her husband, and their decisions’ were made. (Genesis 3:1-7)
The moment Adam and Eve carried out their choices – the ripple effect began to go forth and nothing on Earth was ever the same! Their choices have affected everyone and everything since the beginning of time! Look around you. Listen to the news! Do you see the ripple effect of the choices made that day in the Garden?
Now, God saw this whole process! Are you noticing He did not stop them? He is not going to stop us. He will not intervene in our choices! We have our own free will! However, if we want Him to help – He will. We have to want His help and we have to ask Him.
Make no mistake: There are choices we make that can’t be fixed! There are those who get hurt badly – think about it – can you see the ripple effect from your choices in your life and the life of your family? I know I sure can!
Oh! By the way – don’t blame Adam and Eve for their choices – If they hadn’t done this – one of us would have!
