Lessons from Noah’s Ark

A fun collection of lessons people can take from the story of Noah’s Ark!

A popular book was once titled, “Everything I need to know I learned in kindergarten.” Here’s a take-off on that theme (author unknown) that was added to our soon-to-be refurbished CEH Humor Page.

Everything I Really Need to Know I Learned From Noah’s Ark

  • Plan ahead.  It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
  • Stay fit.  When you’re 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something REALLY big.
  • Don’t listen to critics – do what has to be done.
  • Build on the high ground.
  • For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
  • Two heads are better than one.
  • 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 things 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, there’s always a rainbow on the other side.

Note: From September 7 to 23, new articles on CEH will be sparse or non-existent while the Editor is on travel and speaking. Thanks for your patience.
