Jesse Tree: Day 4

December 2

Scripture:  Genesis 6: 11-14; 7: 17-8: 3; 9: 8-13

Reading: When people sin, or do wrong things, God is sad. There came a time when there was so much sin in the world that God had to find a way to remove sin from the world. So he asked Noah to build the ark and to save his own family, as well as the animals, because Noah and his family remembered God. Then God sent rain and the world flooded, and God destroyed all the people and animals that were not on the ark.

When the flood was over and Noah and his family were safely on dry ground, God made a covenant, or a promise, with Noah. God promised not to send another flood that would destroy the world. As a sign of this promise, God put a rainbow in the sky. Even in a sinful world, God still loves us and keeps his promises.

Talk About:  Can you name a promise that God has kept?

Prayer:  Thank you, Almighty God, for keeping your promises.
