We are in Genesis 2 where God is explaining why we are here and why we are different. Adam is placed in the garden alone to show him that this is not a good situation. The animals are brought before Adam so that he can see that there is no animal that is the perfect fit for man. God makes woman different than man so that man and woman would uniquely complement one another, working together as image bearers of God to all creation. But making man and woman different was not the complete answer for the human need for relationship. The account does not end with the man exclaiming that woman is “at last bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.” Turn to Genesis 2:24-25 and we will consider the rest of the picture.
