Sin and More Sin
Today's reading: Genesis 6:1-8
After the passing of thousands of years, chapter 6 of Genesis brings us forward to the generation of Noah. At this point in time, there are hundreds of thousands of people inhabiting the earth, and as the number of people has increased, sin has also flourished and increased exponentially. Verse 5 is particularly saddening because it goes beyond outward actions to reveal the extremely sinful and dark condition of our hearts when we are not in relationship with God.
What does this passage reveal about our sinful nature and sin in general? How often do you think about the ways your wrongful acts and thinking impact your life circumstances and also your relationship with God? What does Genesis 6:1-8 reveal about our desperate need for a savior? Tami
