The earth was big,
There were a lot of people there.
But God looked down
And saw that only Noah was good enough to spare.
Everyone else was doing bad things,
While Noah loved God with all his heart.
God told Noah that a flood would come down,
And to save his family he had to build an ark.
Noah did as God said.
He built the ark according to the plan.
Before the rain came down the others laughed,
But Noah knew that God would keep him safe in water or land.
Animals filled the ark two by two,
And some more.
Soon Noah was ready,
And he closed the door.
The rain came down,
The flood was there.
But soon it stopped,
And a rainbow appeared.
Noah was safe,
And his family too.
God did this for them because He loved them,
Just like He loves you!
“By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith” (Hebrews 11:7)
Before the flood animals and humans got along together really well. It was only after the flood that God said there would be strife between man and animals.
“And [God] … said to them, “The fear of you and the terror of you will be on every beast of the earth and on every bird of the sky; with everything that creeps on the ground, and all the fish of the sea, into your hand they are given” (Genesis 9:2).
