Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called Woman, for out of Man this one was taken.” Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh. 25And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.

Genesis 2:23-25

These verses set up the classic story of Adam and Eve in the beginning stages of the bible. A lot of people come away from this story with the idea that women were created from men and therefore men were to be superior. I would like to challenge that way of thinking, as these verses are telling us something quite different. For starters, both who are mentioned are made from the same flesh and both were made in God’s image. Verse 24 also mentions how one day the two shall become one flesh, working together as equals through the journey of life. This story is never-ending, The lessons it teaches are still relevant in today’s world more than ever. It also serves as a call to love all those around you, because in the beginning, and at the end of the day, we are all made of one flesh.

Dear Lord, help us remember in our daily lives that all are made equal in your creation, and to love your neighbor regardless of who that may be. Amen.
