Kids4Truth Clubs Daily Devotional – God Wants Us to Serve Him

One of the saddest verses in the Bible is Genesis 6:6. It says, “And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.” Our God, Who had seen “everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good” had decided that because of people’s sinfulness, He could no longer look upon His creation. He decided it was better to destroy everything.

But God did not want to destroy Noah and his family. Instead He told Noah what He was going to do—bring a flood of waters upon the earth so that everything would die—and what Noah must do to save himself and his family. Noah was to make an ark.

Noah had a very big responsibility. He listened, obeyed, and began a job that seemed absolutely ridiculous to those around him. Yet Noah did just as God had said.

God is looking for those who are willing to serve Him, who will work even though others may criticize them. He is looking for those who will complete a task He has told them to do.

God wants the people who worship Him to serve and obey Him.

My response:

» Am I obedient like Noah?

» Can God depend on me?

» Do I listen, obey, and do the job God wants me to do, like obeying my parents or studying the Bible?
