A WOMAN IS A GIFT AND A BLESSING TO A MAN



A WOMAN IS A BLESSING AND A GIFT TO A MAN AND TO THE WORLD



After God had created everything on earth, He created the first man, Adam. God saw it was not good to Adam to stay alone; He created for him a helper, Eve. A man who finds himself a wife gets God’s favor (Proverb 18:22). A woman is a gift and a blessing to a man in a number of ways.

She is a Man’s Helper

After creation, God gave the man the responsibility of taking care of His creation (Genesis 2:15). Adam named all the animals and plants in the Garden of Eden. God then created Eve to help Adam (Genesis 2:18). A family is headed by a man family, and a woman should be submissive to him (Colossians 3:18).

Adam could not get a helper from the animals or other God’s creation apart from a woman. Therefore, a man’s only helper is a woman. As a helper, a woman is a man’s deficiency solution. A woman is a blessing to a man as she is tasked with assisting the man to achieve his goals. 

She is a Man’s Companion

When Adam was living alone in the Garden of Eden, he suffered loneliness. This is because he did not experience a relationship with an equal being as other animals in the garden did. God created for him Eve as his companion.

Despite the many responsibilities a man may have, he needs someone to talk to and share his experience with. A single man will always feel incomplete until he finds himself a woman. A man cannot keep warm alone, but when they are two, they do (Ecclesiastes 4:11). It is meaningless and depressing for a man without companionship to work (Ecclesiastes 7:8). A woman gives a man’s life purpose and meaning.

A Man Experiences Love Through a Woman

God planned for the union between man and woman through love to bring continuity of the human race. A man should experience love from his wife (Proverbs 5:18-19). A man should also love his wife and not to be harsh to her (Colossians 3:19). He should bring happiness to his wife (Deuteronomy 24:5).

It is through true love that marriage is born. By loving your wife, you know God because He is love (John 4:8). Love brings happiness and connects temporal and eternal. The love between a man and a woman yields patience and kindness. It also brings hope and endurance (1Corinthians 13:4-8). Hence a woman brings blessings. 

Continuity of the Human Race 

God created man and woman and blessed them and told them to be fruitful and fill the earth (Genesis 1:28). According to the scripture, children are a gift of God; they are a present (Psalms 127:3). A man and woman should leave their people to become one flesh through marriage (Mathew 19:5). 

A woman should be submissive to her husband (Ephesians 5:22). By living according to God’s command, both the man and woman receive His blessings. Marriage is also encouraged to overcome the temptation of sexual immorality (1Corinthians 7:2). Therefore, a woman brings blessings to a man by being the mother of his children.

The above points show that a woman is a gift and a blessing to a man. However, not all women bring happiness and blessings to a man. To get the best out of a woman, a man is tasked with finding a woman who is a capable, intelligent, and virtuous (Proverbs 31:10). Seeking for a loving and God fearing woman is vital in bringing blessings to a man.
