All God wanted from the beginning was to love us and for us to love him back. When he initially made man, male and female, man was to be the object of his love. He has manifested his love from the start of man again and again to express this love. He first expressed this love to man by putting man in the garden equipped with everything that he needed to live. Can you even imagine having everything that you need to live at your fingertips without having to lift a finger to work for it? All you had to do was just dress it and keep it up: Wow! Now that is love.
How many of you can just wake up in the mornings and someone has already placed all your requirements, needs and wants right before you? And all that person wanted was for you to reciprocate with love as your payment in full. No debt, no interest rates, no liens, and no matter what you did, it was not right or wrong; it was just all good. Well, the first human family on the planet, knew God, and that is how they rolled.
This family, however, never did get the full understanding of loving God back until it was too late. When someone, especially God, states to you at the beginning, I only need one thing from you for me to know that you are loving me back. You may want to make sure you do that one thing. Summarizing what God said, “I have this one little tree over here that is so special to me, and all I require from you is that you leave it be. By you leaving this tree be, I will account that as your loving me back. Now, all your needs will be met for you clear and free.” Just knowing how the first family had it back in the day makes me want to jump up and shout at them for messing it all up for us.
They let, and you know the story, that devil come up to them looking like a snake, and just talk them into giving it all up. Have you ever let someone just talk you into doing something that took your good thing from you? Once you did the stupid thing, you instantly realize that life would never be the same. What a terrible outcome and shocking realization to swallow. That’s what happened to the first family. They realized too late that they had done the stupid, therefore, leaving God’s love unanswered. Yep, they had to leave their good thing and go out and start making a living. Sadly for them, they were unable to recapture that which they had lost.
There remains good news for us. God is back looking for a few good sons and daughters that would like to live the life that the first family gave up on all of our behaves many years ago. Would you like to have all your needs, wants and requirements placed before you in your own garden? All you have to do is reciprocate your love by letting the little tree be. Stay tune and let’s talk about this endeavor of letting the little tree be, before you agree.
