Noah’s Ark

Genesis 6:7-8  So the Lord said, “I will wipe mankind, who I have created, from the face of the earth – men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air – for I am grieved that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

Do you ever wonder if the Lord is grieving for our generation? With all the corruption and evil displayed on the news every day, it is easy to become disheartened. Look for the Noahs in today’s world. Or better yet, jump on the boat and become a Noah on your journey through life.

I found the poem below tucked in a pattern I purchased at an estate sale. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah’s Ark

  1. Don’t miss the boat.
  2. Remember that we are 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, you may be asked 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 a while.
  10. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic was built by professionals.
  11. No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting!
