What Foolish?

“Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in obedience to him.” Psalm 128:1

What kind of foolish do you want to be? It’s a question I’ve started asking myself.

When I hear the word “foolish,” I’m drawn to the story of Noah, a man passionate about the pursuit of obedience, despite looking like a fool.

In Genesis 6, God speaks to Noah about the greatest flood that would ever occur (6:17). He instructed Noah to build a massive ark (6:14-16) and to bring his family (6:18) and two of every creature (6:19-20) on board.

People thought Noah had lost his mind. What kind of a fool would build a giant boat and load it with smelly animals? All while there was not a raindrop in sight. I imagine the mockery he endured from those in his community was painful for Noah.

Yes, Noah appeared awfully foolish. Until… those dark clouds rolled in. Until… it rained and rained and rained. Until… water covered the entire earth.

Noah as a person inspires me, but his obedience challenges me.
