You are familiar with the story of Noah and the ark. God through the faithfulness of Noah saves Noah’s family and preserves mankind from complete annihilation by a large floating craft that carried Noah and species of animals to safety. (Read Genesis 6-8).
You are likely familiar with the phrase if not some of the material entitled “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” by Robert Fulghum.
While looking through some old files, I ran across an unassigned article that ties these two together – “All I Need to Know I learned from Noah’s Ark.”
- Don’t miss the boat
- Remember that we are all in this together
- Plan ahead. It was not raining when Noah started construction.
- Stay fit. When you are 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
- Do not listen to critcs, just do the job that needs to be done.
- Build your future on higher ground.
- For safety’s sake travel in pairs or groups (Noah took seven each of clean animals).
- Speed is not always an advantage. Tortoises were on the same ark as cheetahs.
- When you are stressed – float awhile.
- Remember the Ark was built by amateurs the Titanic by professionals.
- No matter the storm, when you are with God, you can ride it out, knowing there is a “rainbow” in your future.
Have a great day!
