Genesis 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
They ate the fruit. They figured out that they were naked. They didn’t run to God to find out what to do. They didn’t seek mercy. They just decided to fix things in their own strength.
They sewed fig leaves and made aprons. Isn’t that just like us. We sin against God. We realize we have made a mistake, sinned. We are so proud we could never go ask for forgiveness. Instead we start trying to cover up.
Sin causes more hurt than necessary because we in our pride run and try to work things out on our own. God, Himself, will be there to cover their sins in the next few verses. He will love them and seek them out when they are hiding.
Isn’t it time to quit trying to cover up and trust God and the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross!
