The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it…Gen 3:6.
We are most easily swayed (convinced) by what we desire or covet the most (the woman coveted the wisdom she was told the tree would bring her). That is why great warriors can be felled easily by frail, ‘powerless’ women. Its those thing our hearts desire that we should be most watchful and careful about.
