Christie and I studied the story of Adam and Eve with Tanzanians the other day, and, as is our practice, each individual shared what they learn about God and man from the passage we read and summarized. After that, each person stated what they would do in response to our study — how they will be obedient (or at least what response our passage would require of someone, if the Bible and its stories are indeed true).
What I learned:
It’s impossible to be obedient to God,
when I’m constantly listening to people.
What Christie will do to be obedient to God (from this passage):
I will faithfully honor God…
by continuing the enmity between myself and snakes.
The Tanzanians loved her response. And speaking of snakes, I think my beautiful wife may have craftily tricked our friends into believing SHE’s the funny one.
To read more of my wife’s thoughts on snakes, and how many we’ve had in our yard, go to her blog here.
