Read & Reflect: Genesis 6-9. The story of Noah is so well known. Where can we go with it to find something fresh? Maybe we can focus on “faithfulness”? God is so true to Noah and Noah remains loyal to his God throughout. Maybe we can ask questions to get inside the story? Why did God cause the flood? What was Noah’s response? Should we judge Noah when he becomes drunk? Is the judgment laid upon Ham a harsh one?
Respond: “Noah found favour in the sight of the Lord”- is that true of us? Noah is obedient to the commands of God (6: 14- 7:5) – are there ways in which we need to be more true to what God requires from us?
