When the Lord created humankind, He placed unique graces in both man and woman. He told Adam to name the species of life on earth “and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name” (Genesis 2:19). By doing this, Adam not only brought them into his consciousness, but also introduced order and structure to the human experience. Adam did not create the world, of course, but by defining the things God brought to him, he helped establish reality.
Yet, the powerful but dormant quality of the woman was awakened when, while Adam slept, the Spirit took from the man a rib and fashioned it into a woman. Not only was she suitable for him, but she powerfully expanded man’s creative capacities. It is important to remember: God created male and female in His image, according to His likeness (Genesis 1:26-27) meaning they each could think, speak, dream and create. However, it was in the union of Adam and Eve, in their mutual respect of one another’s strengths and graces, that mankind would possess a more perfect expression of the fuller nature of God.
Soon Adam began to understand the greatest power of his counterpart’s ability to conceive and bring life into the world and named her Eve, which meant “life.” “She was the mother of all the living” (Genesis 3:20).
Adam’s primary ability was to name and establish reality and Eve’s unique capacity was to conceive and then birth reality. The primary strength of each gender is that man establishes, woman births.
