Boats (1)

Today and for the next two days, we will discuss some Bible stories that talk about boats. Our first story is about Noah.
God told Noah to build a special boat and to take his family and many animals into the boat. After this happened, God made it rain for 40 days. Noah and his family had to stay in the boat for many months. Genesis 8:1a says, “But God did not forget about Noah.” God remembered Noah and his family. God dried up the earth so Noah and his family could come out of the boat.
This reminds me of a time when I was a Girl Scout. Our troop went camping for the weekend. We all slept in tents. During the night it rained very hard. In the morning, there was water in our tents. We were surrounded by water. Soon our parents came and rescued us from the flood.
Our parents saved us from the water, and God saved Noah and his family. God will not forget you. He will help you and protect you.
