Don’t you hate itwhen you’re told what to do?
But when God tells you     what to do  you need to listen!
Way back at Creation, God told Adam and Eve not to do only        ONE THING
Don’t eat from theTree of the Knowledge of      Good and Evil.
Satan the snake knew this and when he showed Evehow good the fruit looked  he invited her to taste it.
What was theONE THINGGod saidAdam and Eveshouldn’t do?
She did it anyway; then invited Adam    to join her in disobeying God.
At that pointeverything changed.And that one act ofdisobedienceruined the world forever!
Their disobedience introduced death   and destruction
God cursed the serpentand said one dayhed pay forwhat he did.
Then, He told Adam and Eve    life would change:
• No more easy food• Giving birth would be painful• And they would die.
God then kickedAdam and Eve out of their  once-perfect garden
GODand His human creation   were separated!
But there was good news too• God provided clothing from animal skins…  (not leather but cool anyway)
But there was good news too• Then He promised He would do something to  restore the relationship He once had with His  hum...
This is how He did it:
That’s amazing love!
Usually whensomeone hurts youor does somethingyou don’t likeyou get angry,maybe evenignore them.
That’s not the way God works.
When you were baptized,God brought you back into       His family.
That’s the kind of love      He has for you    and the kind of loveHe wants you to show others.
So how do we respond to this       amazing love?
Two ways:1. Love Him with all your heart,   soul, mind and strength.2. Love your neighbour just like you   love yourself.

You do the second part by     Helping people    however you can

Since God loves us so much,CLWR shares that love withpeople around the world in   many different ways.
Members of Lutheran Church–Canadacongregations can’t always personally   help people around the world
But they can do it by giving money and otherhelpful items to Canadian Lutheran World Relief.
Governments in Canada often  support CLWR by providingmatching funds that increase the      work CLWR can do.
When an earthquake hit Haiti, Canadians gaveCLWR more than $1.5 million dollars to helppeople recover.
And to supportLutheranchurches inHaiti as theyalso servedtheirneighbours.
With help from Lutherans in Canada, CLWRalso helped provide food for areas in Africathat suffered from drought.
And help farmers grow more food
And through CLWR Lutherans in Canada helpedpeople in Japan after the earthquake andtsunami.
CLWR also supports Lutheran Church –Canadas partner church in Nicaragua.
