God’s promise to Noah

Talk together

Caroline and her friend, Harry, read this Bible story together.


Caroline is 11 and lives in Germany.


Caroline had a question: “Why do many people still die because of floods?”



Harry answered: “It’s really bad, if people die in a natural catastrophe. Since men are living on earth, we have been not very careful with God’s creation. Nature becomes more and more imbalanced. The consequences are, that, although we have better warning systems and better ways to protect ourselves, more and more people die in natural catastrophes. Just as there is sickness and suffering in this world, there are such catastrophes as well. But there is one comfort: God will not leave us alone. He is with us in everything that is happening to us.”


(Translated from German)

  • Lynsey

    I think that there floods and eathquakes the kill people still in this world now becuase there is sin in the world.

  • Steven Gourlay

    God didn’t say there werent going to be any more floods. He said I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. (Genesis 9:15 NIV84) ie He won’t use a flood again to destroy all life on earth
