When God saw wickedness and violence increase on the earth, He resolved to destroy the earth with a flood. Noah, however, “found favor in the sight of the LORD” (Gen. 6:8). Noah’s faith in God and His willingness to obey the Lord kept him, his family, and two of every kind of animal safe in the ark during the devastating flood. The first three lessons in this unit tell Noah’s story. The fourth lesson relates what happened after the flood with regard to the Tower of Babel. As the lesson will show, it didn’t take long after the flood for humanity to showcase, once more, a sinful and deadly form of pride. Mercifully, God intervened. Even in divine judgment, we see God’s love and kindness in operation. Let these lessons drive home for your preschoolers not only the seriousness of sin, but also the power of God’s love.

Unit Bible Lessons
God sent a devastating flood to wipe out life on the earth, but He protected Noah and his family in the ark He directed Noah to build.
Having come to regret creating humanity because of all the evil and violence in which people engaged, God sent a great flood to destroy life on the earth. Noah and his family, however, remained safe in the ark God had instructed Noah to build.
After destroying the earth in a devastating flood, God brought Noah and his family and the animals on the ark safely to land. God made a covenant with Noah, promising never again to destroy the earth with a flood. He stated that every time He saw the rainbow in the sky, He would remember His promise.
Not all that long after the Great Flood, people engaged in a deliberate and formal effort to thwart God’s authority by placing themselves in ultimate authority. They worked together to build a tower that would enable them to make a name for themselves. In so doing, they were ignoring God. Aware of their intentions, God saw their effort and intervened.
