Job 5:6-7; Psalm 38:3; Ecclesiastes 2:22-23; Mark 10:5-9; 14:1; Romans 5:12
And to Adam He said, ‘Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life.
God made the first man and woman. He gave them everything they needed, yet they turned away from Him and sinned against Him. Because God made them male and female and created the first marriage and family, the consequence of their sin was felt by their entire family. Our sin affects everyone.
Everything was perfect in the world until we broke it. When humanity chose to sin, the world that was once perfect became messed up and broken. Sin is ultimately a rejection of God Himself. Because of sin bad things happen, we experience all types of pain, and death has come into the world. All of creation groans and wishes that the world be perfect and good like it was before.
