Living By Faith Poem by Preston Mwiinga

Living By Faith

Rating: 5.0

He knew that rest lay somewhere up ahead,
but he could never quite reach it. The story of his life brings us face to face with a man burdened with an incredible mission.
Environmentalists talk about saving species from extinction,
but for Noah it was more than the talk.
He was literally responsible for the survival of every land-based living creature including mankind.
Long before the invention of chainsaw,
he had to cut down enough trees to make a magnificent one-and-one-half-million-cubit-foot boat,
stalls and feeding troughs and storage facilities had to be built inside.
As if that were not enough, the entire structure had to be waterproofed in order to withstand a year at the sea.
Remember, Noah lived before the invention of the tools carpenters take for granted today.
He lived before the perfection of metals.
What a monumental task for one man and his three sons to undertake! It takes faith to undertake such an undertaking!
Noah moved on to do the best he could in building the ark as the life of the inhabitants of the earth was at stake.

As modern spiritual heroes, we have been tasked to save this wicked and weakened world. The consequences are as dire as that of Noah if we dare not do what we have been charged to do.
