Genesis 3:20-24

Adam and Eve's Eviction Notice

20 The man named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all living. 21 And the LORD God made garments of skins for the man and for his wife, and clothed them. 22 Then the LORD God said, "See, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever"-- 23 therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 He drove out the man; and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a sword flaming and turning to guard the way to the tree of life.

Musings

Even though God kicks them out of the garden, God makes them clothes. That's kind of thoughtful really. God still loves them, even though they are bone heads. However, they still have to move out of the house (garden) and get a job. Worse, they can't go back. This actually seems like a metaphor to family life from just about any period in time. However it appears poor choices have cost Adam and Eve a very close relationship with God and a nice environment to live in. Some will suggest that this also introduces death into the equation, but I see nothing that indicates that they had eternal life to start with, because the tree of life in the garden is never really explained. So here is a story that can be viewed as humanities fall from grace (as well as for serpents) or as God still caring for and loving his creation even though they can't seem to use their new-found reason or knowledge all that well.
