Sin means breaking God’s rules. We can see sin all around us every day. We see it in movies and TV that we watch and in books and magazines that we read.
Our Bible Reading today tells us about the first sin on earth. God made the earth, and He also made the first people. God put these people, Adam and Eve, in a special garden. And God gave them one rule: “You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden. You must not even touch that tree, or you will die” (verse 3b).
One day the devil came to Eve and tempted her to eat the fruit from that tree. The devil said that she would not die if she ate the fruit. So Eve ate some and gave some to Adam. They disobeyed God. This was the first sin.
Since that time, all people have struggled with sin. The devil tries to trick us into disobeying God. But we should stand strong and turn away from the devil. Pray to God and ask Him to help you stand against the devil today.
