- What are your earliest memories of the Noah's Ark story?
- What do you do or think of when you see a rainbow now?
- What other promises that God made do you hold onto?
Reading: Genesis 9: 8-17
One New Year’s Day, my family was traveling home from church and not far from our house, we saw a full rainbow. What a great way to start a new year! It reminded me of a human rainbow I was once a part of.
Imagine it. About sixty people, standing together in coordinated clothing with a row of people wearing red, a row wearing orange, a row wearing yellow, one row of green, one of blue, and one of purple. Sixty people standing together symbolizing God’s promise that He will never cover the earth with water again.
In a world with witches, devils, warlocks, and sin, it’s comforting to see a rainbow and remember God’s promise. God plays an important role in our daily lives. The symbol of a rainbow shows that God will play an important role in our future as well. We all have dreams, wishes, and desires. With the help of friends, relatives, family, and, of course, God, dreams can come true. Strive for those dreams. You never know when they might become reality. Remember, the Lord works in mysterious ways. The years may change, but God stays the same. -- Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
