Bible Fruit (1)

I think my favorite kind of fruit is raspberries. God has provided fruit for people since the beginning of the world. Today and for the next few days we will look at some fruits that are mentioned in the Bible.
God put Adam and Eve in a beautiful garden. God told them (Genesis 2:16b-17), “You may eat from any tree in the garden. But you must not eat from the tree that gives knowledge about good and evil. If you eat fruit from that tree you will die!”
Our Bible Reading today tells us that Adam and Eve disobeyed God when they ate the fruit from the tree that gives knowledge about good and evil. Many people say that this fruit was an apple. But we do not know what kind of fruit it was — the Bible does not tell us. We do know that Adam and Eve sinned, and God punished them.
We sin, too, just like Adam and Eve sinned. But God sent Jesus to earth to die. Jesus accepted the punishment for our sins. Thank God today for His wonderful gift of salvation through Jesus.
