Why did God create girls?

"God created girls so boys don't have to go shopping," says Mansi, 7.

In fact, "Girls are made to spend the money that boys make," adds Grace Marie, 11.

Forget the shopping sprees, says Trent: "God created girls because he knew the men couldn't cook."

You'll get no argument from me. Most of my life, I lived as a bachelor. My married friends wondered how I survived. Sometimes they felt sorry for me and invited me to a home-cooked meal.

"God made girls because they are nice, they are pretty, they are funny and they can fish good," says Malony, 7.

A girl may be nice, pretty and funny, but if she can't fish, forget it.

It's all in the family, says Zach, 10: "God created girls so we could have sisters, and they could drive us nuts."

Boys need to be bugged, says Chelsie, 11: "God created girls because he knew that boys would be clueless without them! The girls are the ones who stay home with their children when they're sick, and are always ready to help. The boys would definitely be lost without the girls."

Chelsie, before you write off boys as being hopelessly clueless and lost without girls, consider this profound insight from Austin, 11: "God created girls so we would not all be in the same image."

In the creation story, we read, "So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them" (Genesis 1:27).

Notice the image of God is "male and female." There's a male and female side to the image of God. In our selfishness, we pit masculinity and femininity against each other as if they're in competition, or even worse, we deny obvious differences.

Can anyone doubt that God is both strong and powerful while at the same time beautiful and mysterious?

This might explain why so many husbands walk around scratching their heads saying, "I just don't understand women." There are some things we'll never understand.
