The universal flood is important for Bible-believers to uphold, just like it is important to believe the creation account as written. If we cannot trust the opening chapters of our Bible, then we cannot trust any of it. God had Moses write what we needed to know. He then ensured its accurate transmission to us. Second, the flood account is not something of which to be ashamed, as if it were a myth. It really did happen, despite all the denials by people today. Do not be ashamed of the Bible’s teaching even if all your scientific friends mock it. Being ashamed is evidence that you fear people more than you respect God. Third, the flood is an example of how God can and will judge the world just as easily as He created it. He will do so again, though the next time with a world-wide tribulation, followed by the millennial kingdom, at the conclusion of which the earth will be destroyed by fire (2 Peter 3:7, 10, 11, 12). So no, all things will not continue forever as they have in recent history. Substantial changes are coming. Are you ready? Finally, because of the continued evaluation of mankind as extremely sinful (8:21), we intuitively understand the need to do as much good as possible in this world. We are to restrain sin. We are to train our children to be righteous people, and hopefully saved people. We are to demand our kids to be righteous while they are in our home, and even beyond. Christians today are a major reason that the world has as much good in it as it does. We need more, and it is a lot of work. We need to vote to restrain sin. We need to advocate to reduce evil.

Our Scripture reading was found in Proverbs 27:1-27.
