ANXIETY. In paradise, the devil told Eve to cast all her cares upon herself. He said, “you will be like God.” Since then man thinks he has the built-in capacity to handle the challenges of life. He is like God in his estimate of himself. “For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks.” (Rom. 1:21)
In their crusade to face life outside of God’s care, Adam and Eve sewed fig leaves for their clothing. “We can do it,” they told themselves. Yes, they learned their first lessons in dressmaking in the backwoods of paradise while hiding away from their Creator.
