The Flip Side

by Devora Gila Berkowitz

Parshat Noach

Does G-d save Noah because he is a righteous person in an evil world?

Or does G-d destroy an evil world because Noah is a righteous person? 

We can look at life in two ways:

1. Life is full of trials and challenges (the evil world metaphor) but G-d loves me enough to help ("save") me through it all.
2. G-d is smoothing the challenges for me (destroying an evil world) because I love Him so much.

The difference is very subtle. What do these differences feel like to you?
