The Hero and Heroine’s Journey – March 2, 2020
Scripture: Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7 ; Matthew 4:1-11
The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.” (Genesis 2: 15-17)
All of us are on a journey, and the aging process is an important part of that journey. When we look at ourselves on the hero/heroine’s journey, we begin to see, as we grow older, that we are being awakened to deep, simple, and mysterious things we simply could not see when we were younger. We need not be afraid of that journey, nor of the temptations that come our way.
