Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. — Genesis 8:20
Read the whole passage in Genesis 7-8
God flooded the whole earth, filled it with carnage and destruction. God’s wrath nearly destroyed all life. But as his anger waned and the seas receded, Noah stepped out and committed to a different future, a different path for humanity. The first family began with a forbidden fruit, but Noah’s family wouls start with a sacrifice, a promise to obey, a commitment that God would be their God. What direction have we chosen for our family> Along what path are we leading our children or our siblings? Does our temper get the best of us? Does impatience rather than kindness color our relationships? Does laziness or ingratitude stress and corrode our bond? What road are we traveling with our family, the one that leads to obedience and love or the one that ends in a flood?
