Genesis 3:1-8; Psalm 32; Mark 7:31-37

Human growing

Eve and Adam wanted to hide from God. They knew they were in big trouble! Wanting to hide, to run away, is a natural enough reaction when we have been caught out, but it is in no way a mature one. We will be found out in one way or another. Oscar Wilde admitted that he ‘forgot that every little action of the common day makes or unmakes character, and … what one has done in the secret chamber one has some day to cry aloud on the housetops’. Admitting our sins, being reconciled and moving on is essential for human growth.
