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
