I was interacting with a group of students today and one of the questions they posed was: "Why is God partial to man that he made woman from man and not the other way round?"

Well, I was reminded of these beautiful lines from Matthew Henry that are often quoted in wedding sermons:

Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, from under his arm to be protected by him, and from near his heart to be loved by him.

And then again what came to my mind was the quip of a woman libber made some years ago:

God first created man...Then he said: "I can do better!". Then he created woman and it was so.

Yes, we are created equal - men and women - and we must live that out as a reality. And as the image above shows we can make one heart to love all humanity...
