Gen 2:23-24 (NLT)
23 "At last!" Adam exclaimed. "She is part of my own flesh and bone! She will be called 'woman,' because she was taken out of a man." 24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
There is this new Christian band that I have been listening to that I really like, called Anberlin.
In one of their songs, part of the chorus goes, "Boys speak in rhythm, and girls in chords."
Before I explain this, one more thing to think about. Remember many years ago there was a book written called, "Women are from Venus and men are from Mars"?
If you look at these two things along with today's devotional verses you may notice something in common.
Don't see it?
Think about the song "Boys speak in rhythm, and girls in chords." If you think about it, rhythm is very different then a chord. The rhythm drives the beat where as the chords bring a melody. Apart they are ok, but together they make a song.
Now think about the book title "Women are from Venus and men are from Mars"
Venus and Mars are planets in the solar system, they each have their own identity, but together they help make up our solar system.
If you look at today's devotional verses you will notice that man and woman are separate and have their own identities, but when they are married they turn into one, just as the rhythm and the chords make up a song and Venus and Mars help make our solar system.
Apart a man and woman can do good things, but together in the Lord they can do great things.
The only time they don't is when one thinks it can do without the other.
1 Cor 12:14-15 14 For in fact the body is not one member but many. 15 If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body," is it therefore not of the body?
Once a man and woman are married they will soon find out that they have their differences and sometimes think this is a bad thing. But together even though they are different, they make beautiful music together just like the rhythm and the chord in a song.
