The challenges we face in today’s society may seem unique to us. However, over the course of the last 123 days of listening to the Bible in the Year podcast, I have been blessed with the opportunity to learn that this is absolutely not the case. The challenges we face today are the same challenges Adam and Eve faced, the same challenges Cain and Able Faced, even the same challenges that Noah faced. In it, I find that these challenges can be broken down into three simple categories: 1. Trust. 2. Distractions. 3. Vanity. Each one has a unique role in how we choose to engage in society. Each one has its own unique way of interrupting our life. Each one is a way for the things of this world to distract you from your goal. In this, I can only imagine the criticism that someone like Noah faced. He had no trust. People thought of him as a distraction. The vanity of the culture at the time would make him seem to be a lunatic. But then, someone felt the first rain drop.
