In the light of some of the discussion about The End, I recently read this verse:
While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. (Ge.8:22)
It was comforting to me. To think that I could find something new in Noah's Ark! Yes, there will be signs of the end. But each day there are also signs that God is with us and that He cares for us. The end will come, whether we're ready or not...but in the meantime we can keep our eyes open to the evidence of our Creator, and be reminded of our reason for living.
