God made women to serve His purpose. Before the arrival of the first woman – Eve, the creator saw a problem. He saw a need that could be solved by the woman. After creating the first man and putting him in the Garden of Eden to serve divine purpose, God noticed that the man needed company. The birds, animals and other creatures in the garden could not meet the man’s need for company. Therefore, God decided to make a woman for Adam. He could have used some of the dust He used in creating Adam to create Eve for him. But no; instead, the creator chose to make the woman out of the man.
The woman is a product of divine management. God did not waste natural resources in producing her for the man. This act of the creator reveals a major responsibility of women in the plan of God for humanity. It is the responsibility of management – management of resources to serve God’s purpose. Every woman possesses an inherent ability to manage. Give her fifty dollars and she can manage it in achieving what many men cannot achieve. This accounts for why women are less extravagant than men. Yes, I know that there are some really wasteful women out there. There are women who are spendthrifts by all standards. Such women define rebellion against womanhood.
Out of Adam’s rib, the woman was produced by God. From this divine act, the capacity to produce was imparted into women. No wonder joyful conviction was produced in the heart of the man when he first saw the woman, according to Genesis 2:23. I have seen generosity produced out of stingy men after they met women who turned their heads. Put a seed in a woman’s womb and she will produce a child for you. After producing the child, she further produces milk to feed the baby. Women do not only have a management responsibility in serving divine purpose. They also have a production responsibility.
In Genesis 2:7, God formed the man from dust. However, in verse 22 of the same chapter, He made the woman from the man’s rib. The two processes are not the same. The word formed in this context means the man was fashioned or molded into shape. It is the Hebrew word yatsar. In the case of the woman, the Hebrew translation banah for made alludes to being built.
So whereas the man was fashioned out of dust, the woman was built out of the man.
