The story of the flood is also recorded on clay tablets found in Nineveh. Recent archeological excavations confirm widespread floods that almost completely wiped our the inhabitants of the Tigris-Euphrates river valleys. Noah's construction of the ark shows how God inspires people to use the inventiveness and ingenuity to preserve life even during great cataclysms. When one considers, for instance, the vast extent of the Ice Age, it is provedential that humankind survived Read Genesis 9:8-17 for an example of God's concern for the continued well being of the earth.
In what ways can people control floods today?
Will people find a way to prevent hurricanes?
Name some extinct forms of animal life.
PRAYER: We thank you, Lord, for the ability you have given humankind to share in your providential care by developing useful ways of preserving life.- AMEN!
