THE ORIGINAL MOTHER

EVE

Through out the Bible there are many stories of amazing women. I would like to dedicate this Month of May to some of the Awesome Mothers in the bible. I chose 8 simply because 8 represents a new beginning. We all know how much we can benefit from a new beginning. Right? The book of Genesis is loaded with some magnificent mothers but Our Original Mother is Eve and this is who I would like to speak on first.

Genesis 3:16; “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be for thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”  As a woman this is our cross to bear. Imagine how Eve must have felt knowing that due to her transgression she was the cause of this curse upon every WOMAN to ever be. She acted on her own authority when she chose to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. How that must have felt to be in this beautiful garden with everything you would or could ever want are need right at your fingertips and then nothing but the struggles of the world. That’s like having the home of your dreams. No worries about money, food, bills all paid then one day you are homeless with nothing. No more dream home, no more money, no more food, but bills galore.

Eve was mother to Cain, Abel, then later Seth and based on Genesis 5:4 many more. Eve had no blueprint to follow, no role models as examples and she had no internet like most of us mothers in today world. Created by God she was the first woman born of no sin. She was also the first woman to commit sin. Her beauty was so that no woman to this day can compare. She was the first wife, the first to bear children and the first mother to bury her child. Her son murdered by her other son. She actually lost both of her children that day. With the sorrow promised she was fruitful and she did multiply.

Eve was an amazing woman created from dust, the rib of Adam and in God’s image. There isn’t much about her in the Bible and though we can only imagine about her it saddens me that the only thing we remember Eve for is tempting Adam to eat of the forbidden tree. There was so much more to her than that. Her role as an obedient wife, a helper, and most importantly an excellent mother was worth speaking of. Through God’s grace all things are possible and she did fulfill God’s promise she was fruitful and she did multiply. This means she is and will always be the original mother to humankind. With that being said Gods Will be done.

      You are welcome and thank you

  6. Anthony Shelton says

    Deb what would have happened if Adam refused to eat of that tree? Would God have booted Eve out and kept Adam or would God have forgiven her and keep the party going?

    • Deb Mahoney says

      Anthony I’m not sure but I believe our God is not a God to hold others accountable for the free will of others … I believe if Adam had been obedient to God’s authority He would not have been cast from the garden … if Eve had accepted ownership to her transgression … who knows

      • Harold Mason says

        God would have forgiven her and still punished her – ijs

        • Deb Mahoney says

          I agree … see I am not a bible scholar, as my Pastor sarcastically calls us :-), but I am striving to be. And what I’ve learned this far is if you accept responsibility, repent and don’t repeat the sin you repented you will be forgiven by God …

  7. Stanley Bull says

    There is so much wisdom and knowledge in the Bible. If we would simply listen (read His Word) He would reveal it all to us. But then sometimes it takes a friend to exhort us to do it. Thanks Deb for doing His Will.

    • Deb Mahoney says

      Thank you Stanley

  19. Christina says

    AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!! THAT’S ALL I CAN SAY TO YOU,YOU’RE AN AWESOME WOMAN OF GOD!

  20. Mona Lisa says

    We always say so-and-so paved the way for this and that. But Eve is the original who paved the way for women, because she was the first. Thank you for this insight into how Eve basically learned on the job because everything she did has not been done yet. Like having kids and feeling heart broken by the loss of one of her sons. Just knowing we now in this generation can avoid a lot of headache if we learn from the past of others. And do as the bible say and start to obey. Yes we were born into a sinful world but we do know what we need to do,we just have to make up our mind to live for God, and follow his command (no cutting corners).

    • Deb Mahoney says

      Amen

  21. Brandy says

    I will say that this correlation to real life was a beautiful way to teach the lessons of life. Often we forget the foundation and its importance to societal markers that are repeating again. Thanks for shAring I look forward to reading more.

  22. Jan says

    Awesome read. Never really have much credence or thought other than she pressured Adam to give in to his tempation. Thank you for giving me a much clearer insight of Mary.

    • Deb Mahoney says

      Thank you Jan

  23. Barbara says

      And I’m trying to bless the blog readers

  24. Tchina Montgomery says

    I read your blog and enjoyed it! I look forward to reading more in the future! As you know I haven’t officially chosen a religion, but was raised by Jehovah witnesses! I always questioned and didn’t understand why God couldn’t stop them and give them another chance and why God has to punish everyone for Adam and Eve’s sins! I know I was told that God did it because he is a loving God! I also never understood when he kicked his son out of the heavens…why he allowed him to come to earth and influence so many in a negative way! When God had the power to put a stop to it! I also was told that God will lock up Satan after Armageddon, just to release him again years later to try and influence many more people! I just don’t understand why we have to be put under so many tests’ in life! I know he’s given us freedom of choice…but I do blame Eve in a way! If God talked to me through the heavens and I was able to see miracles…I would not have eaten the fruit and wouldn’t let my man either! Sorry for the long rant! I just struggle with my personal feelings! I enjoyed your blog! Keep them coming!

    • Deb Mahoney says

      Tchina I will get back to you on some of you’re issues but first I would like to say in reference to your thought on why God did not stop Eve in the garden … As parent our children often times do things that we do not approve of and when they do we punish them for it … This is no different from what God did with them … I don’t believe the the punishment would have been so severe had she accepted ownership of her transgression … I
      would love to invite you to Bible study ..

  25. Patricia Perry says

    Amen Deb! Keep writing for the Lord.

  26. TeAuna says

    Good way to put what Eve experienced into todays perspective.

  32. Lorenzo Lawson says

    Great job Big Sis! The Bible says a wise woman builds her house but a foolish plucks it down. Women have been the cornerstone of the Church for many years now. If you ever want to learn something start from the beginning. Can’t wait to hear more.

  38. Rochonne says

    Great read … Thank you for sharing. ????

  39. Harold Mason says

    I love the metaphor of today’s relationships –

    “That’s like having the home of your dreams. No worries about money, food, bills all paid then one day you are homeless with nothing. No more dream home, no more money, no more food, but bills galore.”

    If couples thought and lived like that we would have an even stronger Black community –

  40. Edward J. Dunn ( E. Jay) says

    As the original mother Eve, did in fact give life to the human race. This in and of itself makes her not only the original mother, But THE MOTHER SUPREME!!!

  41. Sean Longmire says

    God’s will will surly be done! That was an insightful article and well written. Mercy and grace continue to shine upon you darling!

  42. Cynthia Williams says

    Another on point insight.

    Keep writing and sharing your blog.
