In this chapter, we learn about the dramatic consequences of sin. But, God’s covenant with Noah reminds us that, even in the midst of incredible wickedness, God is faithful to His promises. In our own lives, we can see the terrible effects that sin has had, maybe even particularly in our own family. But in the midst of our worst sins and the storms of life, God will be faithful, even when we are not. The symbol of the rainbow is a reminder that God will never abandon us.
