Reading: Genesis 7: 11-24
Can you imagine what it would have been like to live on Noah's Ark? To be in that confined space, with all sorts of animals, their feed, and human food for several months?
I lived in an ark. It wasn't as big as Noah's, but it was called an ark, nonetheless. Of course, I was not on water and could leave the ark as I pleased. In fact, the ark I lived in was pretty nice. My arkmate and I furnished it quite well for a small space.
I can empathize with Noah. It must have been tough. But he just did as God asked him to. He knew what he was doing was very important and put his total faith in God.
Our spiritual lives are a journey, just like Noah's trip. At times, we may get impatient when we are in confined spaces. But with trust in the Lord, we will get through stormy times and reach dry land! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Discuss or meditate on this quote by Meister Eckhart. "God does not ask anything else of you except that you let yourself go and let God be God in you."
