Noah’s Ark Story (Genesis 6)
Grieving God – king, earth, stars, tears – God saw that all humanity became corrupt. He grieved, because he created mankind for worship, but they chose violence.
Catastrophic Flood – cities, corpse, ocean, raincloud – God judged Noah’s generation. God told Noah about his plan to send a flood that would drown all creation.
Rescued Remnant – God decided to save Noah and his family from the destruction. He taught Noah how to build a giant ark to protect his family from annihilation.
Creation Caretakers – God sent pairs of every beast and bird to the ark. Noah and his family would feed and care for God’s creation through the great disaster.
