Overview of Week 3:
Today we boarded the ark with Noah and his family to observe an interesting family situation in which everyone under Noahʼs authority was required to trust him despite how crazy his ideas seemed. Parents often make decisions that cause us to raise our eyebrows. We might wonder, How is that a good idea? The real question is, “Should I trust them or be suspicious of their intentions?” We want students to understand that their parents have their best interests in mind when they make decisions. Like Noahʼs sons, the students need to learn to choose to trust even when their parents sound weird. During those crossroad moments, they should choose trust over suspicion.
“So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. This is how you are to build it…” – Genesis 6:13-15
