Many years after Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden, mankind had progressively become more evil - in absolutely everything. God was filled with sorrow and justice. He is a good Father. He cannot abide any evil. There was only one solution.
1. Do we remember that God is just? Do we remember that we should turn from evil, just as He has told us, repeatedly?
2. Do we remember the consequences of that evil during that time, and that there are consequences for disobeying Him and His will?
Challenge: We do know that our Father is merciful. But He cannot tolerate evil at any time or from anyone or anything. Pray to remember this in our own lives, and be in prayer for our very, very fallen world this day.
