The Curse was not only a punishment for man's disobedience but also a provision for man's good, forcing him to recognize the seriousness of his sin, and realize the folly of trusting anyone but his Creator. This showed man's inability to save himself from destruction which would encourage him to a state of true repentance toward God and trust in God to save him. Analogously, the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which is the modern scientific statement of this decay principle (see notes on Genesis 1:1), though pointing toward an ultimate death of the universe at the same time points back to a primeval creation and therefore compels men to look toward the Creator as the only possible Savior.
