And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them. – Genesis 3:21
In reading Genesis today, I was struck by how good you are to us, even in the midst of our disobedience. In Genesis 3:21, you provided for Adam and Eve, tenderly loving them out of their shame. Even in disciplining us, you show the same kind of love for us. In Genesis 4:7, you reminded me that sin is always crouching at my door. You tell me to rule over it – to live out of who I am, to pursue holiness. Help me to love you more than sin, to always go back to the cross and live a life in the light.
