God Views on Diversity

I flat out love complementary colors. In my art, whether it’s whimsical, playful interpretation, or realism, complementary colors, bring everything to life! Black by itself is a flat canvas. White by itself is a flat canvas. When black and white are put together, the canvas comes to life! Detailing a field full of yellow flowers, or a head full of yellow blonde hair comes to life when you add purple, yellows complementary color. Or those red pops on our green Christmas trees -complementary colors add life! Complementary colors are always opposites. Today I was reading Genesis and an artists palette flooded my thoughts. In Genesis, we learn that God created man and woman in His image. God created Adam first and then a “helpmate or helper suitable“ for him. “Suitable helpmate” meant something very different in its context and Hebrew origins than it does today. Those words are derived from the Hebrew words that meant she was the perfect person that God chose to create just for him as a helper in the greatest sense. The word also means she was a perfect fit “according to the opposite of him”. Like an artist palette, those opposites when standing alone were lacking something. Together they brought life.
The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
Genesis 2:18
