Planted in the garden of paradise are the tree of knowledge and the tree of life. There was nothing wrong with the tree of knowledge; it did not kill Eve’s soul. It was the disobedience that killed.

The trees were planted by God and life comes through knowledge. And knowledge comes through humble obedience. Because Eve disobeyed, she received neither knowledge nor life. The three go together.

Thus the apostle warns us that knowledge is given only to the humble; and knowledge without humility puffs up.

He who thinks he knows a thing or two, when in fact lives a life of pride, knows nothing at all. But he who is humble receives knowledge that leads to real life.
