Today’s Scripture Reading

But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and all the domestic animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind blow over the earth, and the waters subsided; the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were closed, the rain from the heavens was restrained, and the waters gradually receded from the earth.  Genesis 8:1-3a (New Revised Standard Version) 

How good is your memory? For some of us, short term memory and long term memories are selective. We remember what we hold most dear sometimes. And other times, there seems to be no rhyme or reason to what we remember and what we’ve forgotten. In today’s reading, it starts off with God remembering something very near and dear to God’s heart—Noah, and all the wild animals and domestic animals with Noah in the ark. God remembers you, too. What does this mean? In today’s reading, our remembering God steps up and takes action, causing the wind to blow and the waters of a great flood to subside. God takes action for Noah and the animals. Surely, in the floods we face these days, literal and figurative floods, God will remember and take action as well. Amen.
