When they heard the sound of the LORD God moving about in the garden at the breezy time of the day, the man and his wife hid themselves from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
Genesis 3:8

Their eyes were opened and sin became theirs. Once they knew what they have done they tried to hide, but one thing they did not learn was that they could not hide from God.
We can all wonder to what the sin was that Adam and Eve committed, but the first one was listening to the serpent telling them to go against God's Word. They listened to temptation and not to what they originally were told to do.

How often do we do the same thing, go against what we are told to do. Or someone egging us to do something as a dare. We are all in some way prodded to go against what we know is right. Is it in those times we see if we can overcome listening to the voice that will send us astray. Because no matter what we do we can't hide from God either. We can try but He does see us in our nakedness, in our sinfulness. His forgiveness is great, when we seek it from our hearts.

Why do we listen to the voice that leads us astray as Eve did and led Adam to do the same? Can we be the ones to turn that sin around and show God that we can listen to Him for once. That would be something for the record books.
