Genesis 9:22-27 Curse of Ham
Being that I am a parent I have a different perspective on this section of verses. The actions of a parent can effect their children for generations. This is a very good example of that. Noah's action of getting drunk and then getting naked had a long effect on his son Ham. We still see the results today.
I need to be aware of what I am doing because my children need me to make right choices. They are watching me.
What I want to know is where was Noah's wife? Why didn't she take care of her husband?
I have heard Ham get the blame for this curse but I think that Noah and his wife need to take some of the responsibility for their actions. If Noah had not been drunk, Ham may not have been cursed.
Just a thought.
