The Genesis story of Creation is a wonderful accounting of the beginning of humankind. What excites me the most about all of God’s creative splendor, however, is the fact that He decided it was not good for man to be alone, and made woman as a companion for him. The balance of Scripture makes it clear that relationships are near to God’s heart and to the heart of His son, Jesus. We were made to relate—remember that and grow in relationship to those God has brought into your life.
