Oh no! Not more about genealogies!
Take a look at the ages people were back in the days of Genesis 5, when they had kids. Adam 106, Seth 105, Enosh 90, Kenan 70, Mahalel 65, Jared 162, Enoch 65, Methusalah 187, Lamech 182, Noah 500.
Did you spot the odd one out? Hmmm.
I wonder how Noah felt about that? There is a bible verse I’ve quoted before – Proverbs 13 v 12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. It’s something many of us have to deal with – whether like Noah, it’s (apparent) childlessness, or any other vision, hope, dream that just doesn’t seem to be happening.
There is a saying that although we often have to wait for God, he is never late. The timing was spot on for Noah. He had kids grown up enough to have partners, but not so old as to have produced him any grandkids yet. I take my grandkids out sometimes. ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ wears thin after an hour’s drive. Imagine having kids cooped up on the ark for over a year!!! The logistics would have been more than a little tricky in so many ways.
Yes, God had it all in hand.
