It's Day 24 and we're in Genesis 9.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Nothing jumped out to me again today. Genesis has been a struggle. That'll happen sometimes.
- Verse 21 - And this was the good guy!
- Verses 24-27 - Two important things to remember: 1. All that Noah does isn't approved by God. We see throughout Genesis example after example of the person of God doing things that are less righteous than you'd want to see. This is an example. What Noah does is immature and wrong. 2. This passage has been twisted down through the centuries by racist pastors to say that black people are cursed and deserve the slavery they were enduring at that point. That's simply manipulating the text to make it say something that it absolutely does not say.
