As we begin our daily journey through the Bible, it’s only natural that we should open in the beginning with the story of Eve in the Bible.
God created Adam from the dust of the ground and breathed life into his nostrils. He placed Adam in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it, but God realized that it was not good for man to be alone. He needed a helpmeet.
God introduced Adam to every living creature, the beasts of the fields and the birds of the air, but no suitable companion was found. So God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep, and as he slept, God took one of his ribs and created woman. When he brought her to Adam, Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” (Genesis 2:23 NKJV)
“God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27) “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.” (v. 31)
Though God created Adam first, Eve was no afterthought. God knew from the beginning that it was not good for man to be alone, so he created woman so that man might have someone to do life with. Though they were each made in the image of God, they were not the same. Man and woman were designed to provide for each other and compliment each other’s weaknesses.
Though we are different, we are each important in the eyes of the Lord. He made you who you are for a reason. May you embrace God’s unique design for your life, striving to be the very best that you can be.
