Genesis 6:9

Oct 8, 2011   ~~~   Bible Readings

From the King James Bible, our passage for today:

9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

 

From the New International Version Bible, our passage for today:

9 This is the account of Noah and his family.
Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.

 

Reflection…

Saying that Noah was “righteous” and “blameless” does not mean that he never sinned. Rather, it means that Noah wholeheartedly loved and obeyed God. For a lifetime he walked step by step in faith as a living example to his generation. Like Noah, we live in a world filled with evil. Are we influencing others or being influenced by them?
