Source: COLUMNA BITES OF WISDOM
The very first Hebrew word in the Bible is BEREISHIT (translated "In the beginning"). GOD also used BEREISHIT in creating the Universe. Now, BEREISHIT starts with the letter BEIT or BET, the 2nd letter of the Hebrew Alphabet. Many people wonder why GOD did not start the Bible with the first letter ALEF with the numerical value of 1. The Hebrew letter BEIT has a numerical value of 2. Why BEIT, why 2?

YOUR FREEWILL: USE IT WISELY!
The Hebrew letter BET is the 2nd letter of the Hebrew Alphabet, which has a numerical value of 2. The reason why GOD intentionally created our world with BET is because He designed the world with DUALITY. This means that our world today was created or designed to be with 2 directions, or opposite polarities, or opposite charges. So there is Good and Evil, Truth and Falsehood, Life and Death, Blessing and Curse, Positive and Negative, etc.
Man was given the power of freewill or free choice to choose between these two polarities. Man's use of his freewill or where he will place his freewill, will determine his future, his reward and punishment, his development or regression.
By the Law of Cause and Effect and the Law of "What you Sow, You shall Reap," man will then receive reward or punishment, blessing or curse, in this world and in the world-to-come.
