The mystery of the mismatched collar

Originally appeared on

Noah and the ark. It’s a story many of us are pretty familiar with.

I’d always loved reading about Noah’s close relationship to God—and his obedience to God’s direction. But a recent experience left me wondering about Noah’s relationship to the guy next door. “Did Noah’s neighbors know him?” I asked myself. How might the story have turned out if those neighbors had recognized him as the intelligent, faithful man I’d grown up reading about?

We'd love to hear from you!
