Read Genesis 9:8-17


Read Genesis 9:8-17

8 God said to Noah and his sons, 9“I am now making my covenant with you and with your descendants, 10and with all living beings—all birds and all animals—everything that came out of the boat with you. 11With these words I make my covenant with you: I promise that never again will all living beings be destroyed by a flood; never again will a flood destroy the earth. 12As a sign of this everlasting covenant which I am making with you and with all living beings, 13I am putting my bow in the clouds. It will be the sign of my covenant with the world. 14Whenever I cover the sky with clouds and the rainbow appears, 15I will remember my promise to you and to all the animals that a flood will never again destroy all living beings. 16When the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between me and all living beings on earth. 17That is the sign of the promise which I am making to all living beings.”

Think

When last did you take notice of a rainbow - and remember this passage from Genesis.
A passage in which God promises to be patient with us - merciful with us.  God promises to help us work things out.

Pray

Lord - let me remember your rainbow.  Especially when I think you should be angry with me - you've promised to be patient.
