Two great reflections from Genesis Chapter 2

First: God’s great design in creating and connecting Man and Woman.

And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam,
and he slept; and He took one of his ribs,
and closed up the flesh in its place.
Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man
He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 

Second: Man’s response to God’s design

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.”

Here we have a man’s first words spoken to woman: the first words of a husband to a wife. Adam essentially means that he believes the truth that he and his wife are so spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically connected that it is like they are one person. This is grand, intimate poetry.
Yes ladies, a guy said that.
