W is for Woman...


There is no bible character name that starts with the letter W. Therefore I am going to reference Woman.

God caused a deep sleep to come upon Adam.  While he was sleeping God took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh and he made a woman.

God styles and equips men and women for various tasks, but all lead to the same goal - honoring God.  Man gives life to woman; woman gives life to the world. Each role carries exclusive privileges; there is no room for thinking that one sex is superior to the other.

'And 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

until next time...nel

  1. Hello there.
    Even though woman came from the rib of man, it is ultimately God who gave her life (Genesis 2:21, 22). Woman was created to be a "helper" or "complement" to the man (Genesis 2:20). She was not to compete with him nor him with her, but both were given the same commission to become many and fill the earth (Genesis 1:27, 28). I agree, as men and women, we each have different abilities, but our main focus in life is to serve God. We were not created to be independent of Him (Jeremiah 10:23) and we are under obligation to serve Him (Deuteronomy 11:1; Ecclesiastes 12:13 Mathew 22:37, 38)
    Thanks for sharing.
