“What on earth is wrong with us?” Humanity experiencing problems is nothing new. In fact, it’s as old as the beginning of the human race. But just as God created all things good, He sets boundaries in place to maintain this goodness. When Adam & Eve crossed this boundary, their relationship with God was damaged.
What is wrong with us is that we are “boundary crossers.” We cross divine boundaries put in place not to keep us out, but to keep us together. To live peacefully in harmony with all creation. Consider that Adam & Eve’s boundary crossing was less about fruit and more about their inability to care for and respect the garden.
It is easy to be distracted from what is good for us, to coast and go about our day not realizing a boundary has been crossed. When Adam & Eve crossed their boundary, it opened their eyes to what’s important. They took a step back and asked what is going on.
