Adam and Eve were unashamed of their nakedness as they walked in the Garden of Eden.

Then they sinned against God.

Immediately they became uncomfortable with something that had once been acceptable.

Quickly they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.

Sin had altered their way of thinking.

We are told to abstain from the appearance of evil; to pray that we won’t give into temptations; to be renewed in the spirit of our minds.

One reason we are given these commandments is so that we will be level-headed as we make decisions for our future; so that we won’t allow the influence of sin to influence our choices.

Because of the fall of man the original plan of perfection has been altered. But Jesus brought with Him a plan of redemption, able to restore us to the perfect grace of God.

So let us press on, willing to make decisions based only on His righteousness.
