Most of us will never have “15 minutes of fame.” We go about our daily lives in anonymity, serving our friends, families, and co-workers. We aren’t rewarded in measurable ways. We simply persevere.
Noah’s wife is the perfect role model for us during these days and months and years of seeming obscurity. She remained anonymous to everyone but was certainly known to God. Imagine her life on the ark! Think about cleaning the stalls and cooking the meals! Think about the endless rainy days! She reminds us that we may never be known to the world but that the work we do within our homes has the ability to save the world.
