Bible Reading: Gen. 7:1-13
Text: Gen. 7:13
In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark.
Parenting is one of the critical roles in building a desirable family, nation and posterity strength. It is very essential to know that parenting is also one of major causes of disstablization in the world today.
Noah exemplified a great role in the picture of his generation. He played an acceptable role of a father to his children and there was no misinterpretation of this against his relationship with his darling wife. He trained those aged men to be fit for their respective assignments in life.
Noah’ children never had a contrary opinion to the decision of their father on any matter, mostly importantly on issues that related to God’s principles.
If Noah was a father in this generation, he wouldn’t be going to church and his children would follow from afar. Wherever God commanded, they went together. Whatever God requested, they did together.
He preached the will of God into his children before the flood and they all followed him into the ark. He was a prominent ambassador of the Lord will in the life of his children.
As an individual or parent, you must portrait the right temperament required to sustain the glory and the purpose of God in the life of your family even to your in-laws. As a father-in-law, Noah was too responsible to be ignored.
Brethren, you must be firm, upright, stand for the faith in your life and family.
When it comes to modelling God to the next generation, Noah is a case study.
