Genesis 9:8-17

God's Rainbow Covenant

[...]12 God said, "This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: 13 I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth." 17 God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth."

God's Yellow Sticky Notes

Rounding out the flood story, God sets up a sign of the covenant with the people - the rainbow. This is a great way to take something occurring in nature and using it as a reminder about God. In the cartoon the rainbow seems to be there to remind God about the covenant, but it's doubtful God needs a reminder, but anything that gets people's minds back on God is a good symbol. This is even more fun since it appears in the sky (heavens), after a rain (flood), is awesome (like God) and on display for all the people to see. So the large, colorful sticky note is there for our benefit.

Mark 1:9-15

Well I Declare

[...] Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news."

GOOD News, What's That?!

It's hard to understand why our culture is so obsessed with bad news. "It sells newspapers" is one rationalization that upon closer examination is self-incriminating - it wouldn't sell newspapers if we didn't buy them! The Gospel is about the task of spreading the joy and love of God, and delight in each other's blessings. Wouldn't that be a nice headline!
