GOD'S WILL


 


THE EVIL OF SELF-WILL

God told Adam: from every tree of the garden, you may eat; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you must not eat. Adam could eat his fill of all the trees in the garden, and, as long as he did not act against obedience, he did not sin.

 

A man eats of the tree that brings knowledge of good when he claims that his good will comes from himself alone and prides himself on the good that God says and does in him. And so, at the devil's prompting and by transgressing God's command, the fruit becomes for him the fruit that brings knowledge of evil and it is only right that he should pay the penalty.

 

St. Francis of Assisi
