You and all your household

“Then the LORD said to Noah: ‘Go into the ark, you and all your household,
for you alone in this age have I found to be truly just.’” (Gn 7: 1)

We can repeat what Genesis said also in our age—there are not many like Noah “to be truly just.” Fortunately, the Bible is not publishing the results of a “competition” about which age is the worst but telling us that God is always protecting His believers. God knows the importance of the family and the importance of the father in the family. It was not only Noah who “found favor with the LORD,” but also his family: “Go into the ark, you and all your household.” When we have fathers who believe and respect God the Father, we also will have strong families.

“Whoever loves me will keep my word, says the Lord; and my Father will love him and we will come to him.” (Gospel Acclamation)
