“Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God” (Genesis 6:9).
Out of nowhere appears Noah. When the earth is on the brink of being destroyed; when God has decreed emphatically that he will blot out man, the life of Noah is introduced in such a way that it changes the entire storyline. His presence brought hope and renewed possibilities. Noah is a reminder to each one of us about the agency of our influence; in a world that seems despairingly lost, our presence as salt and light can be the game-changer.
