Genesis 6:9-12 NIV
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.  Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.  Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence.  God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways.
What an amazing image, Noah walking faithfully with God – even more impressive against the backdrop of those around him. I must be honest, whilst part of me desires that, but another part of me hankers after the same things as his neighbours; as Paul put it in the New Testament there is a battle in me between the new and the old man.
Father, align my will with yours that I might be faithful and long for and walk with you.
