This week we are learning about Noah and the ark as recorded in Genesis 6-9. This Bible truth explains how God saved Noah, his family, and the animals.
This Bible truth tells a lot about God’s character. First, God is fair. He didn’t allow people who were rotten to the core to continue in their wicked ways. But also, God is overwhelmingly gracious. So He made a way for Noah, a faithful man, to be saved. He gave Noah a big job, but one that would ultimately rescue Noah’s family and many animals on the earth.
This grace is the same grace that God showed when Jesus gave up His life on the cross to take away the sins of all people. God is a promise keeper. The rainbow is a sign of His promise never to flood the earth again.
As parents, you care deeply about building character into the life of your child. Character isn’t something that develops overnight. It’s a gradual process that involves taking time to talk about those things that matter most. It’s prioritizing time and concentrating on relationships.
And it’s about using those teachable moments, perhaps when your child needs correction or asks a thought-provoking question, to emphasize those character qualities that matter the most.
Thank you for helping your child learn the Bible truth!
Things to talk about at home after this Bible Lesson:
- What is the biggest animal you can think of? If you had to put that animal on a big boat, how would you do it?
- Have you ever listened to the rain? What does it sound like? Is it loud? Is it musical?
- What would have happened if Noah did not follow God’s directions and didn’t build the ark or built it wrong? Is it important to follow directions? Why?
