Chapter-a-Day Genesis 3

When the Woman saw that the tree looked like good eating and realized what she would get out of it—she'd know everything!—she took and ate the fruit and then gave some to her husband, and he ate. Genesis 3:6 (TM)

Appetites.

Possession - acquisition - things - stuff..."she saw" and desired - the lust of the eyes.
Hunger - craving - physical pleasure..."good eating" - lust of the flesh.
Power - control - to be just like God..."know everything" - pride.

Appetites. Natural desires out of control..."she ate" - sin.

Yep. Me, too.

There is nothing new under the sun. Ecc 1:9
