So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals. But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

– Genesis 2:20-22 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor,, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

The observation is often made that Eve was not formed from Adam’s head or foot but his side. This signifies that women were not made to dominate over men nor were they created to be stepped on by men. God commissioned men and women to work side-by-side in the affairs of the earth, and we miss much if we don’t see women activated in all that God has for them.
