Temporary Leaves 

img_5219When Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the garden of Eden, they felt exposed and tried to cover themselves with leaves. Later on, despite being disappointed with them due to their disobedience, God made them better coverings from animal skins. The point? When we mess up and try to fix things on our own, it’s like those leaves….a temporary solution. They couldn’t protect Adam and Eve from the elements. Still, God’s love is so great that although we fail Him, He doesn’t leave us to die on account of our mistakes. He takes care of us, even as we face the consequences of our actions.
At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.
And the LORD God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife.

Genesis 3:7, 21 NLT
