This Week’s Topic
How Adam and Eve Messed It All Up
Watch the video above and talk about it with your family. Learn more
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn about the first people God created. First, God created Adam. He picked up some dirt to form his body and then breathed into his nose and Adam came alive! Pretty cool, huh?! God also created a beautiful garden where Adam lived. It was called the Garden of Eden. Adam had free reign of this beautiful place full of trees, flowers and yummy fruit. God gave Adam just one simple rule to follow. He could eat any fruit, just not fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. At some point, God decided that Adam needed a friend so he wouldn’t be lonely. So, he put Adam to sleep, removed one of his ribs and created Eve. That’s also pretty cool, huh?! So, Adam and Eve lived together in this lovely place until one day a snake spoke to Eve. He wanted to trick her into eating the forbidden fruit by ignoring God’s rule. And, it worked. Eve ate the forbidden fruit and so did Adam. Once they realized their mistake, they ran and hid from God. They knew that they had made the wrong choice and they knew God would be mad. God wasn’t happy with their choice, and they did pay a consequence. But, God loved them and forgave them. He’ll forgive us, too.
