Day 12: Noah, Patient Father

rainbow
After Adam, Noah can be seen as the second father of mankind, as all of us can trace our linage back to him. Noah is also an excellent example of fatherly qualities.  In world that was sinking into wickedness, and in the face of being constantly mocked, he managed to protect his family, keeping them righteous. As fathers, we will have to protect our children from similar influences in today’s world.
For many years, he preached to wicked people who not only did not listen, but turned him into a laughingstock. He kept his family together through what must have been one of the craziest family trips of all time, and when they stepped off the ark into a clean, new world, he established mankind’s second chance.
Question: How can we pattern our lives after Noah’s righteous example?
