This story is a story of integrity and faithfulness in the face of overwhelming adversity. In this story, the evil king thinks he is the one who determines outcomes and that he is in control. But Rack, Shack, and Benny know better. The greatest truth of this story is summed up in one line…from verse 17 ”but even if he does not…” God is the one who controls outcomes. We are to be faithful and trust God for the rest.

This story is used to decorate children’s rooms and nurseries the world over…but this is far from a children’s story. It is the point in the story of God where He is regretting ever creating man, so He pours out his wrath in the form of water and destroys nearly everything and starts over. This story is a reminder of a couple of truths: 1. God cares deeply about this world…the state it was in grieved him. 2. He is a God of restoration…not simply destruction.
