Cause and Effect Transition

13 10 2012

Some transitions come as a result of choices we make. This cause and effect transition in the life of Adam and Eve is one such transition for it is the result of the choices they made in eating the apple from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.


“The LORD said, ‘These people now know the difference between right and wrong, just as we do. But they must not be allowed to eat fruit from the tree that lets them live forever.’

So the LORD God sent them out of the Garden of Eden, where they would have to work the ground from which the man had been made. Then God put winged creatures at the entrance to the garden and a flaming, flashing sword to guard the way to the life-giving tree.”

Gen 3:22-24 (CEV)

Because Adam and Eve now understood the difference between right and wrong (the cause), the effect was banishment from the garden of Eden. Cause and effect transitions often comes with a drastic change as we see here. Suddenly Adam he had to work the ground to survive, and Eve learned the depth of the pain of childbirth we learn in future verses. Sometimes, we can feel we are the victim of cause and effect transition as Adam did, but here in the garden this was not the case for Adam listened and followed his wife willingly.

With the cause and effect transition there is little outward preparation, while there maybe warnings a plenty, as in the garden, affording us time to decide if we will heed those God-given warning.

This type of transition is common throughout our lives and we must not beat ourselves up when we or some we love make poor choices, rather we must confess, repent and then forgive ourselves and others so that God can use even this transition for His glory!
