Theme : FIG TREE
Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.
-The fig tree is among the 3 mentioned trees in Genesis.
-It was very popular among the Jews & other communities in both the old & new testament.
-In Genesis 3:21,God made tunics of skin, for Adam & Eve and clothed them.
-After Adam & Eve disobeyed God & ate the fruit of knowledge of good & evil, they made themselves covering from fig trees instead of seeking God who made them skin tunics later.
-The fig tree in this passage symbolizes clothing & a shortcut to cover up sins.
Lord Jesus, I thank for waking me up to start a new week. Cleance me from all my sins with Your precious blood. Give me the strength to rely on Your divine will & follow Your commandments to the later. Amen.
