This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God.
Genesis 6:9, NLT
Saying that Noah was “righteous” and “blameless” does not mean that he never sinned. Rather, it means that Noah wholeheartedly loved and obeyed God. For a lifetime he walked step by step in faith as a living example to his generation.
I know that I am a sinner and not perfect. I want to influence others in a positive and God willing way. At the same time, I hope to receive a positive and God willing influence from others. I must love and regularly and routinely remind myself to obey God. It is right to try to conduct myself as righteously as I can and continue to grow my relationship with God.
When I apply love and obedience in my own life, I can be a good living example and a positive influence to my family, my friends, my clients and my acquaintances.
