Charles Stanley - The Consequences of Disobedience in the Garden
Every action we take has consequences, especially whether or not we obey God. There are repercussions for sin, but ultimately God is on our side when we repent and accept His forgiveness. Take heed of God’s commands because obeying them is always in your best interest.
Making important decisions without considering the consequences is foolish and dangerous, yet people do this every day. And many times they end up regretting the choices and realize too late that there are irrevocable consequences. Their hopes and dreams are shattered, and there’s no turning back. This is exactly what happened to Adam and Eve when they foolishly chose to disobey God in the Garden of Eden.
All our actions have consequences; therefore, we should carefully consider the ramifications of our choices before we act. The story of Adam and Eve’s disobedience in Genesis 3 warns us about the consequences of ignoring God and His commands and choosing to yield to temptation.
