Genesis 6:5-8; 7:1-5, 10
The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
And the LORD was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.
So the LORD said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the ground, man and beast and creeping things and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
Then the LORD said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation.
Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and his mate; and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate; and seven pairs of the birds of the air also, male and female, to keep their kind alive upon the face of all the earth.
For in seven days I will send rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living thing that I have made I will blot out from the face of the ground.”
And Noah did all that the LORD had commanded him.
And after seven days the waters of the flood came upon the earth.
For one man, God has always had mercy on humanity. It takes just one, for favour to abound.
Is doing what is right, lonely? Yes, but it has saved more people than one.
Is doing what is right, hard? Yes, but it has made more lives easier.
Do not wait for another saviour, save yourself. Live according to the Word that is written in the bible and your heart.
Dear Lord, let me continually do what is right and find favour in your eyes, Amen.
