3:16 THURSDAY::::week one

3:16 Thursdays is a series of blog posts focusing on the 3:16 passages throughout the Bible that have really stuck out to me in my studies from Genesis to Revelation.

Genesis 3:16
(niv)
To the woman he said,
“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you.”


The key thing to remember here is that this is a command after sin entered the world. We really don't fully understand or know the utopia that Adam and Eve experienced before they chose to sin, but we do know the consequences after. You can clearly look around and see pain in child birth and you can see man's desire to rule over women. You can also see the unhealthy lengths that women go to for their desire for man's affection.
