We all love the Noah story based on the cute Ark and animals. This story God has placed in His Word is so much more, and is for us today. The Word of God states that in the last days, it will be “as in the days of Noah.” We are in the last of the last days. We can look everywhere, people are marrying, eating, and drinking, and the days are evil with gross darkness.
Our children and young people need to be taught honor. Our kids do not always honor their parents who they see, how can they HONOR A GOD who they can’t see. Noah and the Ark, is about how one man honored God by doing what God said, and it was the plan and pathway to the world back to God’s plan.Our children and young people need to be taught honor.

What a task God gave to 500-year-old Noah! Imagine building a wooden boat one and a half football fields long (450 feet), wide enough to park 12 average cars side by side (75 feet), and 5 stories tall – with tools less sophisticated than your handsaw and hammer! And on top of that, God asked Noah to build the ark on dry land! Noah and his sons and neighbors had no idea what a flood was. Yet Noah obeyed God. With the help of his sons, he had it finished by the time he was 600.
We aren’t 500 years old, God has given us a task to build up His precious kids. It takes time and energy, and finances to prepare a life-giving message of God’s wonderfulness. We must be prepared and dependent on God to direct and equip us in all that we do. He gives us specific direction in lessons to teach, illustrated sermons, games, memory verses, and crafts. We need to be praying and listening always to hear His direction. Even when you are all prepared and you arrive at the classroom, be listening and following the flow of the Spirit. I know it can seem impossible at times to reach our little ones, especially because of the gap in ages, but Nothing is impossible with God. Pray and have your ears perked for the Holy Spirit direction.
