Noah was humble

At the time Noah lived in, people did all kinds of evil. It was so bad that God was sorry that He Had created mankind. To put a end to all this violence and sin, God decided that He would send a huge flood of water. But God had not forgotten Noah. He did not want to let him die, because Noah was a righteous man. He believed in God and did God’s will. God asked Noah to build a gigantic boat – an ark. God told him he should take his family with him on to the boat when God told him to. And Noah did exactly what God had told him to do.
