Block Number 8 in my Bible Sampler Quilt is The Curse. This is taken from Genesis 3:10-13, 16-19. It is the result of the disobedience. We all have to suffer the consequences of our actions - even though there are those who would like to do away with consequences - it cannot be done. We have to live with them for the rest of our earthly life. Jesus takes away the eternal punishment when you accept Him as your Lord and Savior, but that does not remove the consequence of your actions in this life.
