TREASURES FROM GOD’S WORD | GENESIS 6-8

“He Did Just So”

“He Did Just So”

6:9, 13-16, 22

Imagine how much effort was required for Noah and his family to build the ark without modern tools and construction methods.

  • The structure was enormous​—about 437 feet (133 m) long, 73 feet (22 m) wide, and 44 feet (13 m) tall

  • Trees had to be cut, hewn, and lifted into place

  • Both the inside and outside of the massive structure had to be covered with tar

  • A one year’s supply of food had to be stockpiled for Noah’s family and the animals

  • The project likely took 40 to 50 years to complete

How can this account encourage us when we find it difficult to do what Jehovah asks of us?
