Noah sets foot on dry cool earth and he builds a clean fragrant altar.
2 Cor 2:14 - God smells the the aroma of Jesus when you choose life.
But Life is more than talking about making the right choices.
"For the intentions of man's heart is evil from his youth."
If there be any good in us at all, it is God!
We are far more bankrupt than we know.
We are far more blinder than we realize.
Do we really see the evil intentions of our hearts?
One part of Noah is righteous,
flip the coin over and he's drunk, giving control to another.
And it's his two boys who cover Noah's shame.
May God direct us to build an altar of Praise
and a blanket of Grace over the sins we so easily see in others.
"Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Bear fruit in keeping with repentance.
Am I dealing with the evil in my own heart?
Am I offering coverings of grace to everyone else's heart?
"People are so apt to drift along on the surface of their lives
not really seeing or hearing or feeling very much
because most of the time they are little more than half alive,
the rest of the time time, dazed, dreaming or detached."
Am I half alive?
