A few things made me pause along the way as I read Genesis 5:1-7:24 today. First, people lived a long time right after God created the earth. Second, finding favor can sometimes shorten your life. Third, relief may come in surprising and unexpected ways.
There’s one thing we can be sure of… God always has the last word. This is not meant to instill a sense of shaking in our boots fear of God. This reminds us of the utmost respect and honor we should have for God.
Milton called it Paradise Lost and then Paradise Found. I started The One Year Bible reading plan once again this year. Through the years I’ve used many Bible Reading Plans. Years ago I used The One Year Bible and found it an easy way to at least get into the habit of daily Bible reading.
