Do you ever look at your family of origin or your in-laws and have similar thoughts? Are you ever tempted to build yourself an ark, call down the wrath of God and sweep all those relations away? The problem with that approach is that it doesn't really solve the problem, does it? Noah and his family survived the flood only to start the cycle of sin all over again. Something needs to change, and it isn't crazy Aunt Lucy.
The question is: why don't we believe it? Why do so many followers of Jesus Christ act as if there were no cure, as if there were no good doctor, as if our situation were hopeless and our God, helpless? I suspect it's partly because we don't want to confront the fact that there is a connection between the crisis in our lives and the condition of our souls. While we may not always be the cause of all our problems, we are sometimes pretty good at getting in the way of the cure.
