Everything I now know about the dynamics and complexity of life, I learnt from Noah’s Ark. Here are eleven virtues I gleaned from my Noah, his Ark and the circumstances that earned him a place in the annals of history.
One. Don’t miss the boat
Two. Remember that we are all in the same boat
Three. Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark
Four. Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big
Five. Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done
Six. Build your future on high ground
Seven. For safety sake, travel in pairs
Eight. Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs
Nine. When you’re stressed, float awhile
Ten. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals
Eleven. No matter the storm, when you’re with Jesus, there’s always a rainbow waiting.
