"So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male andfemale he created them." Genesis 1:27
There’s a battle going on in our world that does its best to draw everyone in. It’s not a battle in some foreign land. It’s not a battle fought with bullets and bombs. This battle is one we call "the gender war." Our world tells us that men and women are on opposite sides. The cry for “gender equality” is a loud one. But the fact is, men and women were created differently, uniquely by our great God! Men and women are both created to be image bearers of God. In today’s verse, we read about the role they play and how they work together, not separately. Here’s the reality: men and women were not meant to COMPETE with one another. Rather, we were created to COMPLETE one another!
Thank God for making you uniquely you. Ask Him to help you see where you fit in His creative order and how you can use your gifts to be an example to the world for Him.
Think about the difference between men and women. Those differences aren’t just physical. Remember that we aren’t created to be the same. We are created uniquely, individually, and on purpose.
