Reach out and Read with Me Genesis Chapter 6

Reach out and Read with Me Genesis Chapter 6

The times of Noah sound familiar do they not? I feel the effects of the depravity of our world in my marriage, and in my family. If you also experience this please reach out and read just as God holds out His hand to us and He gives us His word to study. Let’s explore God’s word together as we try to live for Him.

Reach out and Read

As you were watching me read the chapter this week what stood out to you? What was God showing you in His words? What stood out to me was how Noah was right standing with God with all the evil around him. How He could protect his family, teach his children opposite what his world was saying.

I know for myself trying to teach my children, trying to shelter them from the world feels like an impossible task. I reach out and read, I extend my spirit to God and read His word. All to try to have Him show me how to live in this world, not of this world.

We look at Genesis chapter 6 what does God have against the people of that day? We look at verse two where it says men desired, took the daughters of men. Do we see this in our world? Men’s desire and them taking women without any thought of God, or the women. Treating women as their possession?

In 2005, 1,181 women were murdered by an intimate partner.1 …According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, women experience about 4.8 million intimate partner-related physical assaults and rapes every year…..According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, which includes crimes that were not reported to the police, 232,960 women in the U.S. were raped or sexually assaulted in 2006.

With lust, and selfishness of this world how do we teach and protect our children? The evil desires of man are so easily looked as this is just the way things are.

I found another article with some great tips to help our children. I believe as adults, parents it is another story to protect our minds and hearts. But, if we start early we can show our children how to live for God in this world not to be of this world.

  1. Have all passwords to all their accounts online

God promised us with his rainbow that He will never destroy us with a flood again. We will read about this in later chapters. But, He did give us willpower, and He allows our own evil ways to destroy the evil in our world. Please reach out and read with me as we try to protect our families, and their souls.
