Q. Can we learn to live in hard work and humility?


How To Build A Future for Your Family:


1. Notice God’s Nearness To You

This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. Genesis 6:9


 “It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh. Genesis 9:14-15


Walking In God’s Promises

·                Universal Covenant: God will do.

·                Conditional Covenant: God will do – if we follow.

·                Personal Covenant: God will do for an individual.


Key Idea: Discovering and holding on to God’s promises builds our faithfulness.



2. Don’t Get Drunk


Now the sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem and Ham and Japheth; and Ham was the father of Canaan. These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated. Then Noah began farming and planted a vineyard. He drank of the wine and became drunk, and uncovered himself inside his tent. Genesis 9:18-21


Key Question: Why did Noah stumble?

Fatigue? Damaged emotions? Conflict?



Key Idea: Everyone is vulnerable to the sin of excess.



 3. Take Your Boards and Build A Boat.

Genesis 6:14-21 – Noah Builds An Ark








“Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you”

1 Timothy 4:14




“Keeping faith and a good conscience…”

1 Timothy 1:19




“Keeping faith and a good conscience…”

1 Timothy 1:19

1 Timothy 1:5




“Be absorbed in them so your progress may be evident”

1 Timothy 4:15













Noah did everything just as God commanded him. Genesis 6:22



My Board of Obedience




Key Idea: It takes work on our part to see God’s promises fulfilled in our lives.


By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. Hebrews 11:7


What they knew by faith, we know by name. Jesus the King!
