The Contrast Between Noah and Moses

4 Nov

I was thinking about the different responses two men gave to God and the eventual outcomes. Both men were used in a great way by God. Noah was always faithful to God. Moses, while being faithful, just wanted to be a shepherd.

I started listing some differences here. If you can think of others, leave them in a comment. I’m interested to see what you come up with.

God asked Noah to build a boat because He was going to destroy the earth.
Noah’s response: OK.

God asked Moses to go to Egypt and tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go.
Moses response: Send someone else.

Noah spent about 100 years building the boat and sharing his witness.

Moses used every excuse in the book not to go to Egypt.

Noah walked with God.

Moses walked with Aaron.

In Noah’s case, God dealt with the people.

In Moses’ case, Moses had to deal with the people.
