Genesis 6- People relating to God part 3

You got mud in your ears or what?

Genesis 6

Gus and Call have ridden into San Antonio to find a new cook after Old Ball would not cross the river and quit his job.

They had been successful and Poe Campo was gathering his stuff to go with them.

The Captains go into a local saloon to quench their thirst and most likely just reminisce and relax for a bit before they head back to the herd and continue on their epic journey

Gus orders a drink for each of them

And

The bartender ignores them

He just ignores them

Acts like he does not even hear them

Then

Gus says

You got mud in your ears or what?

I guess what he means is why you are not listening to me?

Hey I’m talking to you

If you know Lonesome dove

You know the rest of this scene

Gus ends up whacking that surely bartender with his walker colt

I can sympathize with Gus

We all want to be heard when we talk

Whether we are in a restaurant ordering a meal

In the doctor’s office telling the nurse our symptoms

At school asking questions

In all of our relationships

We want to be heard

And when we are not heard

We often wish we could pull out our pistola’s and whack someone upside the head

But we know that behavior is Rude

And Both Captain Call and God hate rude behavior so we just steam a bit instead

We are made in God’s image

So it should not surprise us much that if we want to be heard

That God wants to be heard as well

Today we are continuing our study in Genesis

People relating to God

And

As ya’ll know we are covering the same scriptures in different ways

In the Morning Round Pens and the Sermons at our Gathering

These sermons and studies are designed to grow us in Christ

And

So we are building

Kind of stacking one lesson on another to get a good picture of how God

Relates to us

And how we

Relate to him

To quickly recap

This morning the world is in a tight spot—on the brink of destruction

Adam and Eve made a bad choice and introduced sin

Into their lives

Our lives and the lives of all humanity

We saw the consequences of their sin

We saw God’s plan

Looked at Stan’s evil plan

And

Prayerfully gained some knowledge to avoid his tactics and lies

The next week we looked at Cain and Able’s sacrifices

How they were received or rejected

The emotions that rejection brought up

The acting on those emotions/feelings

Once again we see that without doubt all sin has consequences

Cain let his mind control his actions

God called him on it and Cain plugged his ears

Like that bartender in San Antonio

He was not listening

He had mud in his ears

As a result of his refusal to hear

He turned his back on God

Separated himself from God

And he started a chain of events

That eventually caused God to hit reset

Sin had completely consumed all but just a tiny piece of the earth and of humanity

This is where we are this morning

Genesis 6:5-7

5 The LORD observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. 6 So the LORD was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart. 7 And the LORD said, “I will wipe this human race I have created from the face of the earth. Yes, and I will destroy every living thing—all the people, the large animals, the small animals that scurry along the ground, and even the birds of the sky. I am sorry I ever made them.”
