Post Flood

Today's reading: Genesis 9:18-29

After the subsiding of the flood waters, Noah and his family started their "new normal" lives. Noah chose to become a farmer who grew and harvested grapes.

I observed several lessons from this incident with Noah and the exchange we see between the brothers as well as that between Noah and his sons. The first thing that came to mind as I considered this account was the commandment that God would formally issue to Moses years later, to honor your parents. Ham was disrespectful to Noah while his two older brothers honored him with their actions.

The other lesson I took away from this account has to do with helping others who have given in to temptation. For whatever reason, Noah made the decision to consume the wine he produced from his vineyards in excess, and as a result he lost control of his senses and sinned. His two oldest sons serve as a wonderful example of coming alongside to help someone who has stumbled or who is sinning. Upon hearing about their father's poor choice and condition, they respectfully and lovingly help him get back on his feet, literally and spiritually.

Has anyone ever helped you get back on track? Who do you know (family, neighbors, church friends, co-workers) who are in need of a helping hand, a listening ear, a word of encouragement or direction? Tami

I'm grateful for those who helped pick me back up when I had stumbled,and strive to provide that same ministry to others.
