ADAM – Genesis 2 v18-25

GOD CARES ABOUT PEOPLE

And Adam says “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she came out of man.”

GOD : “it is not good for man to be alone;”

GOD : “I will make a helper comparable to him”

So GOD brought every animal and bird to Adam to see what he would call them.Every bird and animal!

But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. So what did God do?

He nicks Adam’s rib and makes Woman. Then he brings her to Adam, like a father giving away a daughter at a wedding.

9 Speak up and judge fairly;

defend the rights of the poor and needy.

PROVERBS 31 The sayings of King Lemuel – an inspired utterance his mother taught him.

(good on you Lemuel’s mum!)

2 Listen, my son! Listen, son of my womb!

Listen, my son, the answer to my prayers!

3 Do not spend your strength on women,

your vigour on those who ruin kings.

4 It is not for kings, Lemuel –

it is not for kings to drink wine,

not for rulers to crave beer,

5 lest they drink and forget what has been decreed,

and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.

6 Let beer be for those who are perishing,

wine for those who are in anguish!

7 Let them drink and forget their poverty

and remember their misery no more.

8 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,

for the rights of all who are destitute.
