The Language of the Fall

Cursed is the ground because of you;
In toil you will eat of it
All the days of your life.
“Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you;
And you will eat the plants of the field;
By the sweat of your face
You will eat bread,
Till you return to the ground,
Because from it you were taken;
For you are dust,
And to dust you shall return.”

 "Complaining is the language of The Fall"

I recently heard this, and it resonated, so I thought I'd share.

The reason the fall came about was because it seemed that all that was provided was not good enough.

As the lines above spell out, the fall also led to plenty of other reasons to complain.

 But, it is not the language that we should use. It leads to more dissatisfaction and more poor decisions. It is the language that led to The Fall of mankind and it is the language that continues to spell out our fallen state.

Learn a new language.
