Only 8 People

Do you think it every crossed Noah’s mind, “I can’t be right, because there is no way that only 8 people could be right on a planet with 8 billion people on it?”  I know there were doubts with Baruch, the assistant to Jeremiah, when they were opposed and thrown into a pit, because Baruch was complaining about the situation, wondering out loud how that doing right like this could be such a mess.  God told him, “And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.”  In the end, we don’t want to be ripped off, following after something that isn’t true and yet unpopular at the same time.  However, it is true, that might be the most redeeming quality.  You believe it, because it’s true.  You persevere because it’s true.  More than that, you do better or do your best because it’s true.  If it’s true, which it is, you should rejoice in it.  God wants joy.   It’s like when I was a child and my parents, I knew, not only wanted my obedience, but they wanted a smile on my face when I did it.  That instinct comes from God.  God wants you to like what He wants you to do.  He doesn’t want you doing it like you think you are ripped off.  He wants your best.  As you think about that, get a smile on our face, and put in more effort.  Stop acting like you’re ripped.
