Genesis 3–4; Moses 4–5

At first, the story of the Fall of Adam and Eve might seem like a tragedy.

Adam and Eve were cast out of the beautiful Garden of Eden. They were thrown into a world where pain, sorrow, and death are ever present (see Genesis 3:16–19). And they were separated from their Heavenly Father.

But because of the truths restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith in the book of Moses, we know that the story of Adam and Eve is actually one of hopeβ€”and an essential part of God’s plan for His children.

The Garden of Eden was beautiful. But Adam and Eve needed something more than beautiful surroundings.

They neededβ€”and we all needβ€”an opportunity to grow. Leaving the Garden of Eden was the necessary first step toward returning to God and eventually becoming like Him. That meant facing opposition, making mistakes, learning to repent, and trusting the Savior, whose Atonement makes possible progression and β€œthe joy of our redemption” (Moses 5:11).

So when you read about the Fall of Adam and Eve, focus not on the seeming tragedy but on the possibilitiesβ€”not on the paradise Adam and Eve lost but on the glory their choice allows us to receive.
