Genesis 6: 12-22

Chapter 6

When God saw how corrupt the earth had become, since all mortals led depraved lives on earth,
he said to Noah: "I have decided to put an end to all mortals on earth; the earth is full of lawlessness because of them. So I will destroy them and all life on earth.
6 Make yourself an ark of gopherwood, put various compartments in it, and cover it inside and out with pitch.
7 This is how you shall build it: the length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits.
8 Make an opening for daylight in the ark, and finish the ark a cubit above it. Put an entrance in the side of the ark, which you shall make with bottom, second and third decks.
I, on my part, am about to bring the flood (waters) on the earth, to destroy everywhere all creatures in which there is the breath of life; everything on earth shall perish.
But with you I will establish my covenant; you and your sons, your wife and your sons' wives, shall go into the ark.
Of all other living creatures you shall bring two into the ark, one male and one female, that you may keep them alive with you.
Of all kinds of birds, of all kinds of beasts, and of all kinds of creeping things, two of each shall come into the ark with you, to stay alive.
Moreover, you are to provide yourself with all the food that is to be eaten, and store it away, that it may serve as provisions for you and for them."
This Noah did; he carried out all the commands that God gave him.
Reflection: How does mankind get so off track? I look around and even though I see much depravity I also see so much goodness. People at every turn are helping each other. Christ is here on earth in all the kind acts that people do for each other. I get so fed up with my peers that become so self righteous thinking that they are so much better than the rest of society. That thought alone shows their human weakness and pride. God asked so much of Noah, because of how good he was. I pray that I will have the strength to do what ever God asks of me.
