(Kelly Mcdonald JR) “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)

All humans were created with desires from God. One of these is the desire for Him. We need God above all things in life. Without Him we are incomplete. Another desire God has given us is the desire to have companionship. Interpersonal communication is important; we were never meant to be monks. Males and females were given a desire for companionship with each other. God wants to bring together Godly couples, especially in an age of lawlessness.

I have seen many young people over the years run after relationships that hurt them and others. While God wants to bring us companionship, we must understand the difference between the desire for spiritual completion and the desire for loneliness. They are quite different. Let’s look at Adam in the Garden.

When Adam was in the Garden, the Bible tells us that he was alone. The Hebrew word for alone is bad and it means separation. It can mean separation from a part of the body or even a branch being separate from the rest of the tree. It comes from the word badad, which means to withdraw or isolate. CONTINUE
