Top Ten Lessons from Noah’s Ark
Lesson Number One: Don’t Miss the Boat! See what I mean? A simple yet crucial lesson.
Lesson Number Two: Plan ahead. Remember, it had never rained before but that didn’t stop Noah. He got the design specs from God and acted ahead of the crisis.
Lesson Number Three: Don’t be deterred by criticism or unpopularity. Keep at it.
Lesson Number Four: Appreciate nature in the way God directs. Stewardship is a serious responsibility.
Lesson Number Five: Stay alert for action, whatever your age. Noah was 600 years old when he became a ship maker, even older when he became a sailor.
Lesson Number Six: We’re all in the same boat, baby.
Lesson Number Seven: Avoid loneliness – travel in pairs.
Lesson Number Eight: Learn to be patient and accept God’s will. Sometimes that means you’re a builder; sometimes a zookeeper. Other times, you’ve just gotta’ float awhile.
Lesson Number Nine: As long as you put your trust in the Lord, even the very worst of life's storms can be weathered.
And Lesson Number Ten: Do your duty before God no matter how difficult. And, never ever forget the coming rainbow!
