I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark:
ONE: Don't miss the boat (true in life perhaps,
but very true regarding eternity).
TWO: Remember we are all in the same boat (certainly
all are sinners and all need a Savior).
THREE: Be prepared---It wasn't raining when Noah
built the Ark (good thing to remember).
FOUR: Be fit, for when you're old, someone may
ask you to do something big (like Noah we need to be ready to serve God all our life).
FIVE: Don't listen to critics; just get on with
the job that needs to be done (true in life and true in God's service).
SIX: Build your future on high ground (that surely
speaks of a Godly and spiritual life).
SEVEN: For safety's sake, travel in pairs (God tells
believers to "not forsake the assembling of yourselves together").
EIGHT: Speed isn't always an advantage; the snails
were on board with the cheetahs (how important it is to slow down, exercise care, pray, and wait on God).
NINE: When you're stressed, float awhile (and sometimes
God must slow us down because we are not managing well).
TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs;
the Titanic by professionals (and "except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it").
ELEVEN: The only direction Noah could look was up
through an opening (surely up is the only profitable way to look).
TWELVE: No matter the storm, when you are with God
there's always a rainbow waiting (amen).
