What’s your excuse?

Ever had to work or study in an environment where everyone swears, swindles, half-inches whatever they can lay their hands on and get away with, where might is right, and where people are rude, sneering, threatening, abusive and generally unpleasant to each other, and especially to you?

If you have then you will have some sympathy for Noah. He lived in a place where corruption, violence and evil abounded.

Yet he was ‘a righteous man and blameless among the people of his time’. How did he manage that in such an awful time and place? By walking with God. (Genesis 6 v 9)

So you and I have no excuses. What’s more, we have the additional help of the Holy Spirit. If Noah could be God’s faithful representative in his day and age, bad as it was, then there is no reason on earth why we shouldn’t be able to do likewise, no matter how difficult our situation – just keep walking with God.
