Genesis 6–11; Moses 8

Generations of Bible readers have been inspired by the story of Noah and the Flood.

But we who live in the latter days have special reason to pay attention to it.

When Jesus Christ taught how we should watch for His Second Coming, He said, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it shall be also at the coming of the Son of Man” (Joseph Smith—Matthew 1:41).

In addition, phrases that describe Noah’s day, like “corrupt” and “filled with violence,” could just as easily be describing our time (Genesis 6:12–13; Moses 8:28).

The story of the Tower of Babel also feels applicable to our day, with its description of pride followed by confusion and division among God’s children.
These ancient accounts are valuable not just because they show us that wickedness repeats itself throughout history.

More important, they teach us what to do about it. Noah “found grace in the eyes of the Lord” (Moses 8:27) despite the wickedness around him.

And the families of Jared and his brother turned to the Lord and were led away from the wickedness in Babel (see Ether 1:33–43).

If we wonder how to keep ourselves and our families safe during our own time of corruption and violence, the familiar stories in these chapters have much to teach us.
