Naked

When the Woman saw that the tree looked like good eating and realized what she would get out of it—she’d know everything!—she took and ate the fruit and then gave some to her husband, and he ate. Immediately the two of them did “see what’s really going on”—saw themselves naked! They sewed fig leaves together as makeshift clothes for themselves. When they heard the sound of God strolling in the garden in the evening breeze, the Man and his Wife hid in the trees of the garden, hid from God. God called to the Man: “Where are you?” He said, “I heard you in the garden and I was afraid because I was naked. And I hid.” God said, “Who told you that you were naked? Did you eat from that tree I told you not to eat from?” - Genesis 3:6-11 (MSG)


“Who told you that you were naked?” This is a brilliant way of showing that God ALWAYS sees all. God ALWAYS knew us fully as naked in the garden. God always sees us fully. We don’t need to try to hide!


Journal all this brings to your mind... put it into words.
