Superior Man

Today's reading: Genesis 9:1-17

As we saw in the creation account, God once again sets man apart and above all other beings on the earth. After taking in the pleasing worship of Noah, God blesses Noah and his family and expressly tells them that He has placed them above and given them dominion over all things. God then puts in place a new law dealing with murder, and again, shows Noah and his sons the importance of man with the reminder that "'God made man in his own image'" (vs. 6).

What does this passage show you about your value to God? How does knowing that you were made in God's image make you feel? What do these verses reveal about the depth of God's love for you? Tami

Today's reading: Psalm 127:1-5

Psalm 127 makes it absolutely clear that unless we make God and His Word our foundation, our efforts are in vain.

"Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain."

Would you say that your "house" (your life, relationships, goals, how you spend your time) is built on God? What's one example of this? What do you do to keep your "foundation" strong? Tami

Today's reading: Psalm 126:1-6

The message of tears to joy in verses 5 and 6 resonated with me because I've experienced that very thing. There have been so many times over the years where I've found myself in a difficult situation that, at the time, is heavy and miserable, but weeks, months and in a some cases even years later, it's resolved and I can look back and see how God guided and supported me through the situation with the end result being a stronger and more joyful me.

How has God restored you from tears to joy in the past? What encouragement do you draw from this passage, especially if you're in a place of "sowing tears" right now? Tami

Today's reading: Genesis 8:20-22

After many weeks and months cooped up in the ark, Noah, his family and all the living creatures with them are, once again, free to walk about on the dry ground of the earth. I can only imagine the hustle and bustle of activity as everyone and everything made their way out of the ark into the fresh air and sunlight. Noah, of course, was directing it all. And as the leader of the world, he could have allowed the circumstances and his responsibilities to consume him. But that's not what we see. Noah doesn't let the commotion taking place around him pull him away from God in the slightest way. Instead, once Noah's feet hit dry ground, he worships and gives thanks to God.

On a scale of 1-10 (1 being low and 10 being high), how much focus and importance do you place on worshipping God? How do you worship God? In other words, what does your worship look like? What benefits do you reap when you stop all activity to focus on and worship God? Tami

Today's reading: Genesis 8:1-19

One of the things I love about reading the Bible is the way the various forms of text (poetry, narrative, laws, instruction, prophecy, history) show and reveal God and His character to us. And that's precisely what Genesis 8:1-19 did for me today. Almost from the beginning of the passage I found myself thinking about how wonderful and magnificent God is--His greatness and power, and the fact that He is sovereign over all, yet at the same time, gives attention to detail and provides extraordinary care for all of His creation (Noah and his family as well as every living creature). God's magnificence is so incredible that it's beyond my full comprehension. And when you think about it, isn't that a precisely how it should be when it comes to God?

What did you see or learn about God from Genesis 8:1-19? What are three character qualities of God that stood out to you from this passage? Tami
