    Noah did according to all that God had commanded him.

    He did just so.


    Gen. 6:22.

    Noah had never built an ark before. So he had to rely on Jehovah, doing “just so”—that is, just as Jehovah directed. The result? Noah got it right the first time. Indeed, he had to!


    Noah also succeeded as a family man—and for basically the same reason; he trusted in God’s wisdom. He thus taught his children well and set a fine example for them, which was a big challenge during that wicked pre-Flood era. (Gen. 6:5)

    As parents, how can you do “just so” in God’s eyes? Listen to Jehovah. Let him instruct you in child-rearing by means of his Word and the guidance we receive through his organization. However, despite the parents’ best efforts, some children leave Jehovah.


    Nonetheless, parents who have tried their best to impress the truth on a child’s heart have a good conscience. They can also hope that the wayward child will one day come “home” to Jehovah.

    Sometimes I stop and think about Noah. He had never built an ark before - would have had to make it watertight. I'm assuming that it would have to be organised internally to accommodate all the passengers. Did Noah know what a "cubit" was, and how to measure that?

    Yes, must have been a challenge to raise a family in the Pre-Flood time. The Bible is like a manual, on how to live life and raise a family, according to Jehovah's values and principles.
