“And Noah, man of the earth, profaned himself and planted a vineyard”
~ Genesis 9:20
Initially, Noah is described with the accolade of “a righteous man perfect in his generation”. Yet after saving the world, he’s downgraded to the level of “man of the earth”.
Upon leaving the ark, instead of growing the food needed to rebuild humanity, Noah planted grapes so he could get drunk. His selfish choice revealed not only his base desires, but his priorities.
Every moment offers an opportunity to point ourselves upwards or downwards. Choose the high way.
