Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. … 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, he made into woman, and brought her to the man.
Men and women are different, we all know that. God created Adam out of the dust, and then He created Eve out of Adam’s rib. I’m not sure whether it is better to be created out of someone’s rib, or out of dirt, but we are certainly different. One of the differences is, that men tend to be single tasking, that is, we do one thing at a time. I finish what I am doing and then I go on to the next thing. I don’t do more than one thing at a time. Women on the other hand tend to be multi-taskers. We have all seen a woman, watching TV, reading a book, and doing some hand knitting all at the same time. As men, we probably thought they weren’t really doing all those things at the same time, but they really are. Men and women have different brains. One type of brain is not better than another, they are just different, although I might get an argument on that point. The great thing is that God made men and women different for a reason, He made us different so that we can compliment each other. Women bring lots of things in, so that all the options can be considered, and men throw things out so they can focus on what is important and make a decision. That doesn’t mean working together is easy. It is hard for man to see a woman’s point of view, and it is hard for a woman to see a man’s perspective. It is hard work for everyone, but it is worth it, because things get done better when all things are considers, and the unimportant things are discarded before making an important decision. So, my charge to each of you is; Don’t give up, it is worth it.
