…is it bad that, as soon as I sat down to write this post, I had to put a child in time-out?
Still! Perhaps that is simply a reminder to me of the next Jesse Tree subject: The Fall. And no, I do not mean a reminder of how beautiful autumn can be. Instead, I mean the Fall of Mankind which caused the beginning of death, among other horrible stuff. All because our ancestors deliberately chose to sin over than trusting in God.
So! Here’s the ornament to go along with it:
An apple with a snake curled around it ominously! Perfect symbolism for the Fall!
And now, let’s look at the scripture behind this, shall we? 🙂
Ouch, that’s a tough story. Alas, tomorrow’s story will be even tougher to read! After all, the consequences of sin starts off with a trickle and ends with a flood.
