Many of us have be bemused or bewildered by the recent Hollywood Blockbuster movie “Noah”. I found myself annoyed by the presentation in that it dealt with some things quite well, and some other things incredibly badly. The Bible calls Noah a ‘righteous’ man. This is a very different picture to the drug taking, mad obsessive, murdering, rock giant assisted, personality portrayed by Russel Crowe.
Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark...
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 60 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's 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 a while.
TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
ELEVEN: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.
I hope that this ‘floats your boat’.
