Twelve Life Lessons from Noah's Ark

I came across the following recently, and while its authorship remains unknown to me, I thought it worth sharing. It's not overly profound, nor is it theologically deep, but it is cute. And besides, sometimes I think it's healthy to insert a little cuteness, fun and simplicity into all that seriousness that we call life, and sometimes likewise, into all that seriousness that we exhibit in our Rethinking Faith and Church.

Having said that, what are the twelve life lessons from Noah's Ark? They are these:

1. Don't miss the boat.

2. Don't forget that we're 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, someone might just ask you to do something really, really  big.

5. Don't listen to critics. Just get on with what has to be done.

6. For safety's sake, travel in pairs.

7. Two heads are better than one.

8. Build your future on high ground.

9. Speed wasn't always an advantage. After all, the snails were on the same ark with the cheetahs.

10. When you are stressed, float a while.

11. Remember, the ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic was built by professionals.

12. Remember that the woodpeckers inside are a larger threat than the storm outside.
