“And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.” (Genesis 3:8 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).
The garden of Eden was Adam and Eve’s home and God conducted an inspection of it every evening. This was not a surprise visit; it was a daily meeting with God. But, on this particular day, the scripture says Adam and Eve hid from the presence of the Lord. They hid because they had disobeyed God.
If God inspected my home, would I pass the inspection or would He find grounds to evict me? How about your home? Let’s take time to rid our home of anything that displeases God.
Prayer: Dear Lord, I don’t want to find anything in my house that would be displeasing to You. You have provided a home where I can live with my family. Let me keep it clean and pure in Your sight. Amen!
