The Mitzvah of Waiting

Adam, had he not sinned, he would live forever. And if he would have waited for the next day, he would have been able to eat from the tree of knowledge and it wouldn't have been a sin. If on Shabbos we want to talk about business, we could just push it off for a couple of hours.
