But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

– 2 Corinthians 11:3 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

What was the serpent’s cunning? To convince Eve (and Adam) that the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was better than the tree of life. Sometimes we become trapped in the quicksand of our own judgments, and the result of those moments can create a cynical and hardened heart. In many ways we face the same two trees that Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden. Can we eat from the tree of life and be brought back to a sincere and pure devotion to Christ?
