They came in by twosies twosies
This is a verse in a song I learned as a kid. Here are the animals coming to the great boat to board it. You see a male and a female of each animals. Can you imagine the spectacle? Seeing every kind of animal imaginable as Noah ushered them into the boat? Those in his community must have watched and stared in amazement as animals passed by them that they had never seen in all their lives. What a sight it must have been. What seems like a fairytale today, comes from a Book as real as can be. Such a big plan could only have been put into action by an even bigger God. What a mystery it is.
Genesis 6:9-20 is God’s instructions to Noah:
“And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. “Of the birds after their kind, and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive.
This week is a little different than past weeks, but I hope you will enjoy this little excursion from the norm. I know I am. Thanks for coming along with me.
