But the serpent twisted the truth and made Eve feel that she lacked something. She then saw the tree in a new light-- "the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise" (3:6). And Adam agreed.
There is nothing wrong with wanting more. Jesus said: Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you (Matt 7:7). The sin lay not in wanting more, but in deliberately doing what God had told them not to do.
For reflection: What do I need more of to accomplish what God has called me to do?
Let us pray: Giver of all good gifts, we thank you for the blessings you have given us and for the call you have placed on our lives. Help us to seek more of what we need to accomplish your goals.
