Many people trace the roots of the human race back to Adam and Eve. Good solid Biblical ground to stand on. But in order to get all the way back to Adam and Eve you have to pass through the incredibly narrow bottleneck of Mr and Mrs Noah. Adam was created and placed in the Garden of Eden. Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord among a generation so perverse that God regretted creating mankind. Eve gets a lot of press. Mrs Noah, well, we don’t even know her name. Yet these two women hold such unique places in history that I am devoting my Mondays to re-creation.
I will never experience the totality of Eden or the devastation of a global flood. But each week I am faced with some of the same opportunities and challenges faced by Mrs. E and Mrs. N. What’s for dinner? Who’s going to clean up this mess? There’s a snake in the yard! And just like Mrs. E and Mrs. N I have choices to make. Will they have the same impact as life and death? They may. But through each and everyone I have the same God and the same power to impact lives.
Out of the garden…off the ark…on to the internet…Mrs E, Mrs N and Mrs V!
