Obedience to God is the answer to all your problems, this is just a reminder because we seem to forget why we labour and suffer, and worry about what we are to shall eat and wear. Lets see how it all began, when God punished the disobedience from good to bad. Remember God had everything in place and well planned , no hard labour, no pain, no sorrow, no fear but peace and love. So when God created Adam in his image to fill the earth with people and multiply and have dominion over the fish of the sea, birds of the air and over every living thing that moves on earth and he gave us every herb and trees that yields seeds, and every green herb and every tree of garden of Eden shall be food. When all these were given to us UNDER OUR AUTHORITY, there was only one thing that God did not permit, to eat or touch the only tree in the middle of the garden of Eden , the tree of knowledge of GOOD AND EVIL, if eaten YOU DIE. Àdam used to live happily NAKED before the helper was created and after the helper was created NAKED. They became husband and wife and they were not ASHAMED, until they eat the forbidden tree of the garden of Eden, that was the mistake they did, that’s when they knew they were NAKED. They covered themselves with leaves as they discovered, when God looked for them and could not find them ,they hid as they could not face God as they were naked. God called them again and they answered’ they were naked ‘ and that the serpent told them. So God cursed it, that it shall eat dust and there will be hatred between Adam, Eve and the serpent. Listen to this, all 3 were punished with EVE God cursed that her sorrow and conception will multiply and feel pain on birth and her desire shall be for her husband and he shall rule over her. With ADAM God cursed the ground in toil he shall eat of it, in the sweat of his face shall eat bread till he turn to the ground and shall die, for dust you are and to dust you shall return. Genesis 1:27-30 and 3:1-10 , 16-19.
