So I am back to Genesis for my devotional time, and I have decided to ask a lot of questions along the way. One of those questions is about the big boat that Noah built. Just how big was the ark? Being a visual person I needed more than demensions I needed some object to compare it to. I read that the Ark was big enough to contain 522 railroad cars. So the next time you are with somebody counting the railroad cars going by, seize the opportunity and ask how many railroad cars would fit in the Ark. It's an easy way to cook up some spiritual dialogue.
