The most important event in Gn 8 is that during the flood, God remembers about Noah and all of the other living things and sent a wind strong enough to sweep the rain so that they’d all be safe. Noah begins to send out a dove throughout the course of the flood because the dove lets him know when there is no more water. The first thing that happens is that God remembers about Noah and all living things so he sends a very strong wind towards the flood to avoid Noah and all living things to get hurt. Next Noah begins to send out a dove over the course of the flood, if the dove comes back, that means there is still water, when the bird didn’t come back, Noah knew that it meant that there was no more water. Finally, the water subsides and when all is clear, God tells Noah to bring out all living things to multiply on the earth and become more. A life lesson we can learn from this passage is that God knows what is best for us, he sends the strong gust of wind to sweep the rain off of the earth so that all living things would be safe, he also says at the end of the chapter that for the sake of man he doesn’t want anything to ever strike the ground again so that all living things are protected. Lastly, we can take one other life lesson from this passage, to be patient with God and his decisions, God takes time to be able to get rid of all of the water so that everyone can get off of the Ark, they had to be patient until God said it was safe for them to get off.
"God remembered Noah and all the animals, wild and tame, that were with him in the ark. So God made a wind sweep over the earth, and the waters began to subside"(Gn 8:1)
"He waited yet another seven days and then released the dove; but this time it did not come back"(Gn 8:12).
"Go out of the ark, together with your wife and your sons and your sons’ wives. Bring out with you every living thing that is with you—all creatures, be they birds or animals or crawling things that crawl on the earth—and let them abound on the earth, and be fertile and multiply on it"(Gn 8:16-17)
A life lesson that we gain from Gn 8 is to trust God because he wants the bet for us and does his best to protect us from every harmful situation that he can. Another life lesson, is to be patient with God and his decisions, sometimes we don't get what we sih for right away, for the same reason that God knows when we need him the most and what is best for us.
