YOUVERSION BIBLE: Reading God’s Story: One-Year Chronological Plan Day # 3

Today’s Scripture Readings: Genesis 3-5

I don’t have to read very far into the Bible before my imagination takes over and I start asking more questions than there are immediate answers. Sometimes reading the Bible I feel a little bit like my two year old grandson – always asking of the text: “WHY! WHY! WHY!”

WHY? – that number of stars? WHY? – just that many planets?
WHEN? – is enough? Enough varieties of birds, and cats, and cows and, and, and.
WHY? – did the devil speak through a snake, of all the animals, seriously a snake?
WHY? – is Cain worried about other people killing him? HOW do “other people” fit into the picture?
WHY? – did people live so long? How did people live so long? I think of all the aches and pains I already have at 59 years old and cannot imagine crawling out of bed at 895 years old. WERE woman menopausal, did they hot flash for eons?

WHY? – was God so sorry? Genesis 6:6,7 [NLT] So the LORD was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart. 7 And the Lord said, “I will wipe this human race I have created from the face of the earth. Yes, and I will destroy every living thing—all the people, the large animals, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and even the birds of the sky. I am sorry I ever made them.”

HOW? – great is God’s Grace? Genesis 6:8 [NLT] But Noah found favor with the LORD.

Noah finds favor, and God changes His mind. I exist because of God’s SAVING GRACE.

And in thankfulness I should strife to be like Noah: Genesis 6:9 [NLT] This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God.



and one last question? Who decided to make the giraffe’s neck “just that long”, the Father, Son, or Holy Ghost?  #justaskingWHY
