…Can be learned from Noah’s Ark
I just ran across this when going through some old papers. I thought I’d share it, just for fun.
1. Don’t miss the boat.
2. Remember that we’re all in the same boat.
3. Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.
4. Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
5. Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
6. Build your future on high ground.
7. For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
8. Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
9. When you’re stressed, float awhile.
10. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic was built by professionals.
11. No matter the storm, when with you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting.
Just a fun little list, but there are certainly some elements of truth are in it.
#4 honestly does occur to me. Not that I expect to be that old, or to be asked by God to build an Ark. It’s just that you never really know what physical challenges you may face. Being fit can be helpful in many situations.
And #8, well what can I say? I run for fun, and I don’t mind being told that speed isn’t everything.
What do you think? What’s your favorite nugget of advice?
