Genesis 9: 8-17

Chapter 9
8   God said to Noah and to his sons with him:

9   "See, I am now establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you

10   and with every living creature that was with you: all the birds, and the various tame and wild animals that were with you and came out of the ark.

11   I will establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all bodily creatures be destroyed by the waters of a flood; there shall not be another flood to devastate the earth."

12   God added: "This is the sign that I am giving for all ages to come, of the covenant between me and you and every living creature with you:

13   I set my bow in the clouds to serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.

14   When I bring clouds over the earth, and the bow appears in the clouds,

15   I will recall the covenant I have made between me and you and all living beings, so that the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all mortal beings.

16   As the bow appears in the clouds, I will see it and recall the everlasting covenant that I have established between God and all living beings--all mortal creatures that are on earth."

17   God told Noah: "This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all mortal creatures that are on earth."

Reflection:  I bet man would become afraid that if they upset God too much he would destroy earth again.  He loves us enought to not wish us to fear him.  He protects our true free will.  We as humans can continue to live in honor of God or not based on our own desires not on the fear of a mean god getting us.
