First Tailor and Seamstress

Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves apronlike girdles. Genesis 3: 7 (AMP).

The Story
Adam and Eve had just sinned against God. They disobeyed Him by eating of the tree He instructed them not to. Now their eyes were opened. They realized they were naked. They had to sew for themselves coverings of fig leaves.

That began the need for clothes. Today, clothing is regarded as a basic necessity of life. We cannot do without tailors or seamstresses. Adam and Eve were hence the first tailor and seamstress. Their purpose was to hide their shame/nakedness.

G &T: Sewing
The ability to make clothes is indeed a rare gift. Current times present themselves as opportunities to explore this gift. This is because in addition to being a basic necessity of life, fashion is usually defined by clothes.

Questions to think on:
1. Do you have the gift/ability to make clothes?
2. What possible uses could one make out of the ability to make clothes?
3. Is there anyone around you who needs encouragement to explore this talent in their life?

Remain gifted.

(Note, G&T stands for Gift and Talent).

I never thought about it this way!

My only experience at makin clothes was durin my home economics practical in my 3rd yr of high skul, i made a petticoat :)

~Mimi~ said...

:) somehow i always thot it was God who knitted the clothes together for them...lemme go sec....

:) yup. i was right.
verse 21 The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them..

so technically, my Lord was the first Tailor.

welcome to blogville!!!!! love the provoking questions you asked @ the end.

@ Mimi - I always thought so myself, but verse 7 said they made clothes (coverings) for themselves. In verse 21, God did something better for them.

Thank you for your comment.
