Genesis 3: Two Men Who Listened To Satan

In Chapter 3 and 4 of Genesis, we read of two men who listened to the Devil-Adam and Cain. We can learn some lessons from how each of them fell a prey to Satan's wiles.

When God sent Adam into Eden, He did not send an angel with him to check up on him. Why? Because it is only when we are not being watched, that God can test our heart's attitude. He tests us when no-else is around. Adam and Eve were by themselves and could sin without being observed by any created being.

There were thousands of trees with beautiful fruit in Eden. The tree of life was there too, that would have brought them eternal life. But Adam and Eve did not choose any of these. They went for “knowledge”. They rejected life and chose knowledge -exactly like man does today.
