Genesis 3:6
So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate …

Genesis 4:8
Cain spoke to Abel his brother. And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.

Sin is deceitful and it manifests itself so quickly in the hearts of man. If you read through the first 4 chapters of the Bible, the first 4 chapters of human existence, they are wrought with sin. A blatant disregard for a direct command from God, lying about sin committed, jealousy that quickly turned to murder … keep reading beyond Genesis 4 and the list grows at a rapid pace. God would have been just and right to immediately smite the guilty in Genesis 3 and 4. And yet, God showed them mercy. Even though their earthly punishment was great, God elected to show fallen man mercy. Believer, when it comes to sin, we are no better off than Adam, Eve or Cain. We have blatantly sinned against the Holy God and yet, instead of giving us what we deserve, God elected to show us mercy through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. What a sweet truth that is.
