one

What are you known for?

I've been spending some time this year reading about the various people in the Bible. None other than Jesus were perfect, but each was known for something. One that has its own unique summary takes place in an era when everyone else had become notoriously corrupt:
"Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation." (Genesis 6:9)
Still, when we think of Noah our mind quickly jumps to images of a ship packed with animals or a smiling man next to a rainbow. These are images we see in baby nurseries or church coloring pages, but there is more to the story of Noah. The biggest lesson comes at the beginning story—the lessons of a man who stood alone for God.
One song can spark a moment.
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest.
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship.
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea.
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation.
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness.
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey.
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits.
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom.
One heart can know what’s true.
One life can make the difference.
You see it’s up to YOU!

Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

So can you and I.

Noah was thought of as blameless.

So can you and I.

How? Noah walked with God.

So can you and I.

Be the example.

Be that "one."
