They may sound like simple questions and they may indeed have simple answers in practical terms but, think about it: humanity can be wiped out (and often is) simply because we do not obey God.
The decision Noah made was actually massive and it’s only just hit me.
I wonder if God prompted others, in other parts of the globe, to build boats also. We’ll never know and, to me at least, that’s kinda scary! Sobering in fact (but, is it sobering enough to make me change my ways? I don’t honestly know and that uncertainty is also rather scary itself).
Our actions can incur an enormity of consequences and often those consequences outlive us.
Lord may we be more wise, or – better yet – more obedient and faithful!
