The High Way Journal: Why Did God Put the Tree In the Garden?

God knew that people would sin. He gave them free will anyway. Scripture tells us that He promised eternity from the beginning (Titus 1:2). Jesus was the fulfillment of the plan to offer eternity to all people. They simple have to choose it.

  • Journal about Why You Are Suspicious of God?

  • Why don't you trust him to protect you from the things that harm you?

  • Freedom doesn't come from doing whatever you want. It comes from protecting your heart and walking in the fullness of things that keep you in the light.

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26 ESV 

And the Lord God commanded the man, “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
