The Complete Image of God

     I was searching around in an old notebook that I haven't written in for some time and came across a little note I'd like to pass on.  At the time of my writing I was thinking about man and how man is an example of God so lets come talk about this idea.

Take out a piece of paper and write down a few things. 
     #1  Describe man.  What is he like? (the positive attributes)
     #2  Describe woman.  
           What is she like? (again, only the positive attributes)

As I sit down and try to describe the positive attributes of man I find myself listing protector, defender, provider, tough.   And when I describe woman I'm listing talker, toucher, feeler, tender, nurturer, encourager, all about relationships.  So I went out on the WWW and checked to see what I could find there.  One website had an article on it about the Top 20 Traits Women Want in a Man.  The first five traits were faithfulness, dependability, kindness, moral integrity, and fatherliness.  Other traits included generosity and someone who would listen.   After checking out man I started checking out the attributes of women.  I'll be honest, it was hard to find websites stating positive attributes of a woman but
I did find things like caregiver, resourceful, creative, compassionate, keeper of rules and protective of loved ones.  

     As you look through these positive attributes of both man and woman you come to realize that these are characteristics of God. God said let us make man in our own image and Adam was created.  But Adam, even in all of his perfection, was not complete.  So God made Adam to fall asleep and took a rib from his side and with that rib created Eve.... he created woman.  Now man was not alone and man was completed.  Together, Man and Woman, can show forth the complete image of God.
