What Was the Origional Sin?

Verses for the day: Mathew 6:9-13
Give us each day our daily bread.

This is a prayer for provision. Now, let’s go deeper and make this petition personal: give me my daily bread. Is that a prayer we can really live with? Can we live in this kind of simplicity and trust, like a little child?

There is one place we repeatedly allow our peace and contentment to be stolen. We compare our provision to others. I think of it as the original sin—comparison. Eve saw the fruit of the tree, and it was more pleasing than what she had. The two most important steps in finding contentment in life are not comparing what you have to others and having a grateful heart. God will provide (Gen. 22:14). The challenge set before us is to pray and be grateful for God’s provision.
