Re:Verse reading–Genesis 4:1-16; 25-26 (day three)
“At that time men began to call on the name of the Lord.” This new shining world of self-made men turned out to be neither new nor shining. The old serpent had sold humanity a bill of goods, and the luster was already off. And now, men began to wonder if God was still there. Had he left them? In the succeeding passages, Genesis tells of faltering, unsteady, tenuous voices seeking God’s whereabouts and wrestling with half-forgotten stories of the days when God walked with men. Through all those generations, the Bible reveals that God is indeed still here, there, and everywhere, placing himself within reach of all who will address him. God does not forget men, men forget God. May we remember him. Today.
