There is a famous story that is in the bible. This story is about Adam and Eve. It is probably one of the most important stories in the bible. This story tells about the very first sin that was ever created. It goes on to tell about how everything changed once Adam took a bite of the apple. It is one that I have heard since I was just a little girl and it still holds meaning today. This is how the story goes.
The story starts out with God creating Adam. After God was done creating Adam he placed him in the garden of Eden to work it and to take care of it. In the garden of Eden there were many tress that were beautiful and had plenty of food on them. In the middle of the garden were the trees of life. One of those tress was the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Adam was told that he could eat from any tree in the garaden except for the tree of knowledge of good and evil. If he was to eat from it he would die. God decided that Adam should not be alone. It was then ...view middle of the document...
Instead, they would have their eyes opned up and they will be like God, and know good and evil. So Eve saw the fruit and decided that it looked good and took one of the apples. She took a bite out of it and gave it to Adam. As soon as Adam took a bite of it they both realized that they were naked. So they sewed fig leaves together and made clothes for themselves. As soon as they heard God in the garden they hid. They knew that they had done wrong, so they hid. God asked them why they hid. Adam told him that they were scared because they were naked. God then wanted to know how they knew they were naked and wanted to know if they ate off of the tree of knowledge. Adam proceeded to tell God that Eve gave him some fruit and he ate it. God then questioned Eve and asked her why. She told him it was because the serpent told her she could eat it, so she did. Because Adam and Eve disobeyed God they were punished. God told Eve because of her sin she would have to give birth to children and he would make the labor extremely painful. Adam's punishment is that he would have to eat food from the ground and the ground would be cursed. The ground would produce thorns and thistles. After this, God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden.
The moral of this story is to listen to your parent(s). Just because somebody tells you something doesn't make it true. Your parent(s) tell you not to do something for your own good. They tell you to protect you. You will always have the option to make your own decisions. It is what you decide to do with that decision that is important. Your parent(s) only want the best life possible for you. All they want to do is spare you from a lifetime of heartache and headache. In the end the choice you make you have to live with the consequences.
Telling a story to teach a lesson versus just setting ground rules helps give the other person a better insight. If a parent tells a child not to do something nine times out ten they are going to do it anyways. The kids always think they know better and they don't want to hear what their parent(s) has to say. So if you can put a story with it they tend to understand what you are trying to teach them and maybe even use it later in life to make better choices.
