Woman is blessed, not cursed

There is a great need today to pray about the status of women in the world. News stories vividly illustrate this need: negative predictions about women’s health; discrimination in the workplace; women and girls being abused, kidnapped, and killed around the globe.

A critically important way we can pray about this is to mentally embrace the idea of true womanhood. This true sense is given in the first chapter of Genesis, which says, “God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (1:27). 

God, being infinite Spirit, has created male and female in the likeness of Spirit, not matter. This spiritual account of creation refers to male and female not in terms of physical gender, but as the individual spiritual reflection of the complete nature of God. Both female and male derive directly from God.
