UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
Many tasks seem daunting or even impossible for mere human effort. How can mere humans accomplish such challenging and important work? We learn from the book of Genesis that God worked over many generations, from Noah to Abraham, in order to bring blessings to the entire world.
The creating God is still at work. His purposive acts are long range and play themselves out across the years. Sometimes it can appear that God is not present, or that He has left this world to its own design and desires. However, today’s lesson reminds us that God is always working on behalf of His creation.
O Lord, with deep faith and utter dependence on you, help us to say yes to your desire to be at work in our lives. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
