Dear Mosaic Family,I think we all have times, when in the midst of the daily grind of school or work or family-life, in the middle of the hustle-and-bustle, we pause, and ask ourselves: does any of this matter? I'm not talking about having some massive existential crisis, but rather those fleeting moments when we wonder if what we're doing with our lives means much in the grand scheme of things.
Deep down inside, every single one us wants to (or has wanted to) live lives of consequence. We want our work to matter. We want our lives to matter. We want to matter. We all yearn for glory. Unfortunately, many of us don't understand one of the greatest paradoxes of the universe: if you live for your own glory, your life won't matter that much, but if you live for God's glory, you will live of life of great meaning, satisfaction, and blessing.
As we continue our study through the book of Genesis tomorrow, we'll continue to look at the life of Noah. One of the most astounding facets of the narrative is how little we know about the guy. We don't get any details about his looks, his hair, grooming, wardrobe, education, wealth, house. We don't even learn his last name. Noah what? The narrator intentionally leaves him as a "flat" character. Why? Because the story isn't really about him. His life wasn't about him, which is actually why his life mattered.
Join us tomorrow as we look at most interesting narrative found in Genesis 6:13-7:24.
Praying for you!
