Lessons from Noah’s Ark

Most of you know that my wife and I recently visited the Creation Museum during our vacation. Quite a few people commented that they also found the museum to be a great blessing. I have never had any difficulty believing the Biblical account of the flood or of Noah's ark, and so I didn't need to be convinced of anything. But it was great to see the wonderful explanations of how the whole account could very well have taken place and the overwhelming evidence in the fossil record that is explainable only by a cataclysmic event like the world-wide flood - and so, why not the biblical world-wide flood?!

Here's a list of valuable lessons that can be learned from Noah's experience....

Lessons From Noah's Ark

Plan ahead - it wasn't raining when Noah built the ark.

Stay fit - when you're 600 years old, you might be asked to do something REALLY big.

Don't listen to critics - just do what has to be done.

Build on high ground.

For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

Speed isn't always an advantage. The cheetahs were on board, but so were the snails.

If you can't fight or flee - float!

Take care of your animals as if they were the last ones on earth.

Don't forget that we're all in the same boat.

When the doo-doo gets really deep, don't sit there and complain - shovel!

Stay below deck during the storm.

Remember that the ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals.

If you have to start over, have a friend by your side.

Remember that the woodpeckers inside are often a bigger threat than the storm outside.

Don't miss the boat.

No matter how bleak it looks, when you're one with God, there's always a rainbow waiting for you.

When God shuts the door on this world for the last time, be sure you are on the right side of that door.

Noah before God closed the door

"I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture." - Jesus, in John 10:9

    I like the one about the dangerous woodpecker inside.

    This was posted the night before Noah was taught in Bible School, so the little quips were perfect for the adults–no, we didn’t share them with the kids–and added a little humor to our day!! Thanks.
