In today’s lesson, we’re learning about a special promise God made to Noah. Last week, we learned about Noah and the flood. God sent a flood to wash away all the evil people. But, because Noah obeyed God, he saved Noah, his family and some animals by showing Noah how to build a big boat. God eventually took all the water away and dry land was found again. So, everyone got off the boat to start a new life! God told them to populate the earth with new people and animals. And, God promised Noah that he would never flood the earth again. He gave him a sign to remember the promise and it’s a sign we still see today. It’s the rainbow! God created the rainbow as a reminder that he will never flood the whole earth again. But, the rainbow is also a symbol of God’s unbelievable love for us. He chose to rescue Noah from the flood, and he chose to rescue all of us from sin when he sent Jesus. Even when we really mess up, God’s love is still there. So, the next time you see a rainbow, remember God’s promise and his love for you.
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
