Adam and Eve had one simple rule to follow:
“You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” (Genesis 2:16-17 - NIV).
But as many of the children in your class probably know – often being told not to do something can lead to thoughts of doing that very thing … and then ultimately to us giving in to temptation and doing it.
The end result for Adam and Eve was “the fall.” Their decision to disobey God and eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil caused the destruction of their idyllic existence where there was no sin and no death.
Today, when many believe Adam and Eve to be more “literary” than “literal,” it’s important for kids to understand that not only were they real but the results of their actions are still being felt by us all.
The story of Adam and Eve shows that when we ignore God’s instruction and make decisions on our own it can often lead to very bad results. As Proverbs 14:12 says:
“There is a way that appears to be right (to man), but in the end it leads to death.”
When Adam and Eve chose to decide for themselves what they thought was good and evil, it didn’t make them more like God. God really knows what is right and wrong. We often don’t.
We need to learn to rely on God – and developing that trust in Him starts with understanding the story of Adam and Eve, the very first human beings.

The Bible is the Story of
God’s Love for Mankind –
And It All Starts With Adam & Eve
As we learn from Adam and Eve, people often resist God’s love and what He wants them to do because they want to do things their own way.
We sometimes have trouble believing that God knows better – it’s a pattern that has been going on for thousands of years.
First, the “bad news”: This behavioral pattern led Adam and Eve to eat of the “forbidden fruit” which opened the door to a world filled with sin and heartache and death.
But like anything involving God there is also good news:
He wasn’t surprised by the fall, he knew it was coming and He had someone lined up to make things right – his son Jesus Christ. As the Bible says: “Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.” (Revelation 2:7 – NIV)
Understanding the significance of Jesus and of this Bible verse comes from understanding the very real story of Adam and Eve.
By learning where we come from, we can better learn to serve God in our current circumstances. Get your copy of the All the Facts About Adam & Eve Lesson Pack today!
