Every time Adam had encountered God before, it seems he had run toward Him. Creation. Eve. Giraffes. Sunsets. Big questions. A lot of them he had brought to God.
And that's what's killing me from today's reading.
He ran and hid.
Away from the sound of the Lord walking in the garden in the cool of the day. Away from his Maker. Away from satisfaction. Away from the Giver of answers. Away from life.
Alone. Separated. Distant.
And the question is equally haunting. "Where are you?"
It's not a question of location. It's a question of distance. "Why did you move?"
Sin is a devastating separator.
