Verse of the week

The Lord God said, “It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him” (Genesis 2:18, NIV).

Not only is this a mystical union of the couple’s hearts and lives, but it is a picture of the first “team.” God designed marriage to be a partnership through which the husband and wife can accomplish more than they could accomplish alone.

Time and again through Scripture, the family unit has proved to be a powerful instrument through which God has fulfilled his purposes. From Adam and Eve to Noah and Naamah to Abraham and Sarah, we can see that not only are two are better than one, but the team concept is as old as creation itself. Take time this week to celebrate the team God has given you!
