“And he said, Cursed [be] Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren (Gen. 9:25).” This was Noah speaking to his son, Ham. The error was Ham’s but the curse was upon his son. Imagine that. I’d sure hate for a curse to be pronounced upon me based upon my parents, or someone else’s, error. Also, I’d hate for a curse to fall upon my child (or anyone else) because of my sin. Back in the day, however, many of us did get a few spankings that belonged to our siblings, which left us saying, “why me? I didn’t do it.”
“What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge? [As] I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have [occasion] any more to use this proverb in Israel. Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die (Eze. 18:2-4).”
There was a time when the curse spanned generations. I am so comforted by the Word of God and believe that we are certainly responsible for the sins we commit and must repent, that is turn from these sins and toward God. In the end, we will be accountable for what we’ve done in this life, in particular what we’ve done with Jesus Christ! Thank you, Lord, for the comfort of Your Word. Help us to walk upright before you. Thank you that we are blessed and not cursed as we walk in obedience to your Word. Continue to purify our hearts and bend them toward You. Help us to be salt and light in a bland and dark world. Thank you for being a just God! And thank You for another chance to get it right.
