Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Genesis 9:1-7. God blessed Noah and his sons, and told them to be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the earth.
God also told them that they would have dominion over the earth and every creature on the earth. He said that fear and dread would be on every beast of the earth, every fowl of the air, everything that moved on the earth and on all the fishes of the sea, because they had been delivered into their hands.
God informed Noah that every moving thing that lived on the earth would be food for them like the green herb. But God warned them that they were not to eat any living flesh while its blood was still in it.
God said that he would require the life of anyone who took another person’s life. If a wild beast killed a person, it must die. Anybody who sheds a man’s blood, his life will be taken, because God made man in His own image.
From the beginning man was God’s most prized creation. He made sure to take care of every need man had. He loved us then and He still loves us today and provides our needs. He’s a good Father.
God commanded Noah and his sons to be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the earth.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.
6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
Things to think about:
- What authority did God give Noah and his sons?
- What did God give Noah permission to eat?
- What did God forbid Noah and his sons to eat?
- What did God command Noah and his sons to do?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we study this passage we see that You blessed Noah and his sons and gave them dominion over the earth and every living thing on the earth. You also commanded them to be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the earth. Help us as we live in this earth to have respect for one another and all the creatures that You created. Help us to honor You in all that we do. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
