Not just for kids

Noah's Ark

Genesis 6:5-7:16

If you go shopping and walk through the kids area or down the baby aisle one of the things you're likely to see is some depiction of Noah's story--toys, banks, wall paper, picture frames, clocks, you name it--all with cute pairs of animals and the ark. Noah's story, however, really isn't kid stuff at all. It's serious and what happens is downright awful. Yet in the middle of sin, wickedness, corruption and impending mass death and destruction, Noah is a bright light. Scripture tells us he was righteous, blameless and obedient.

So what can we do with Noah's example? Do you see anything that you want to put into practice in your life? Tami W.

I think Noah is an example of being obedient to God despite what others are doing or saying. God rewards that kind of behavior. Sometimes I get caught up with what others think, rather than what God has asked of me. (God forgive me!) I have to remember that God sees the whole picture, and what He is asking of me, be it big or small, is important to the whole thing. My prayer is to be more obedient to God, despite the opinions of those around me.

Did you ever notice what was said about Noah

It seems so often I just do not have the inside 'sensibilities' to know
if I am or not!
doing what is right is , blameless ...walking with God

Its sad to me that by now I still feel this way about choices, tasks,omissions.
Please pray with me that we all would be like Noah......... a righteous man,(I) blameless in his generation. Noah(J) walked with God.
I just keep going to Jesus. He is so kind.

We can look at Noah and see what we should be more like. Noah didn't have The Law, but he didn't allow himself to fall into sin or be corrupted like the other people. We don't have to do what everyone else does, to be a part of the "group". We should be set apart and do what is right in the sight of the Lord. God show us by the indwelling Holy Spirit the difference between right and wrong. We won't be perfect, but we can work harder at being a good follower of Jesus Christ the King.

I want to work on my relationship with Our Lord and Savior. I want to walk closer with Him. Like any good relationship, it is work and since Jesus Christ did all the work needed for my salvation, the rest is up to me.

I guess we should be more like Noah. He did not allow anyone to corrupt him. We should do what is right, not try to please someone else because you can't please everyone all the time. We should just care what God thinks and what his will is. Ultimately, it God's will that will be done and not our own.
