Parashat No’ach Fixing a Broken World e-d’rash FFOZ

Torah: Genesis 6:9-11:32; Haftarah: Isaiah 54:1-55:5; Gospel: Matthew 3-4

Human evil grieves God's heart. God is not peering down on the planet making observations like a dispassionate astronaut. Neither is He watching us like a man sitting on a sofa watching a football game. Rather, He is like a Father who observes the behavior of His children. He is like a king taking note of how events unfold in his kingdom.
