Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came upon the earth. And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him went into the ark to escape the waters of the flood. Of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean, and of birds, and of everything that creeps on the ground, two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, as God had commanded Noah. And after seven days the waters of the flood came upon the earth.

I live in a large metro area where the probability of a mass casualty event is higher than most. My parents live 300 miles away on a barely paved road in the forest. And yet, if my dad called and told me to come hide in their basement, I would probably laugh in his face. But that is essentially what Noah’s sons did. There is no indication they heard the voice of God, yet they followed their father into a massive boat sitting on dry land. Sometimes, trusting God means following people who have exhibited the ability to hear from God and the characteristics of a righteous life.
