Events of the Bible: Enoch and Methuselah- Weekly Devotion

Hey everyone. Now I am sure when you saw the title of this you were awfully confused or were looking at me like I had four heads because I get it, they don't exactly teach you about Enoch and Methuselah when you are in church preschool. Stick with me though, because I think this is quite an interesting story that I am going to try my best to relate to you and your life.
 
 
Weeekly Devotions
 
What we are Learning This Week:
If you recall we have learned about Adam and Eve our first parents. They were the first human beings on this earth, created by God. You read in last weeks reading about a man named Enoch, who was the seventh generation after Adam. The bible tells us that he walked in righteousness and worshiped God his whole life. This doesn't mean that he never sinned but God was super pleased with his constant devotion to him and kept him from death. He took Enoch to heaven one day and he was seen no more. Methuselah was the son of Enoch. He was a Godly man too who had an extremely passionate devotion to God. God blessed him and he lived longer than any other person that the Bible speaks of. In those days men and women lived much longer than we do now. Methuselah lived to be 969 years old.
 
Relating it to Your Life:
This sounds all great and cool but how does this relate to us? How can an ancient man mean anything to me? Well I can't promise you that you are going to go straight to heaven without dying or that you will live to be 969 years old but I can promise you that God blesses those that are devoted to him and follow his ways. If you are obedient to God regardless of the sin we all have, then God will bless you. God has only ever wanted the best for you so his rules and guidelines he sets are to better your life. Follow them and you will prosper.

  2. This is such a nice devotion, Juliana! That part of the Bible doesn't really get looked at quite often, but you made it into a wonderful devotion that was relatable and full of wisdom. I can't wait to read one every week :)
