In the first creation story we saw yesterday the progressive order in which God created the world today we see what sets humanity apart.
One of the most important things to remember in reading the story is that the word adam is not a name it refers to a human being of either gender.
First, we are the image and likeness of God.
Second,male and female in this version of the story are created simultaneously. They are created as two sides of the same coin. In this moment of creation marriage as we know it comes into being.
Up until this moment, at the end of each day, got has looked at the world and seen that it was good. Now God looks at the world and sees that it is very good .
This is the world how God intended to be. Send will later change the relationship of man and woman,alienating them from one another and from God. In today's reading we see who we are created to be. As we go through this day is look for opportunities to respect each person.as the image and likeness of God
