10 life lessons from Noah

If you haven’t watched the latest film, Exodus — Gods & Kings — at least take away some of these life lessons. Lessons on faith, fear and survival. Pretty much everything you’ll need in today’s day and age.

Lesson #1: Plan ahead — it wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.

Lesson #2: Don’t listen to your critiques — the neighbors might have made fun of him, when he started building in the driveway. But Noah had the last laugh.

Lesson #3: Stay physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually fit — you never know, when you’re 600 years old, someone might come along, right out of the blue and ask you to do something REALLY big.

Lesson #4: Don’t seek to go it alone — always travel in pairs, because two heads are better than one.

Lesson #5: Speed is not always an advantage — the cheetahs were on board with the turtles, they both arrived on safe dry ground at the same time.

Lesson #6: Handle conflict with certainty — If you can’t fight or flee from adversity — at least make certain you have an idea that can float in the battlefield of ideas!

Lesson #7: Don’t miss the boat — when all is said and done, we’re in the same boat.

Lesson #8: Don’t rely much on the experts — remember, amateurs built the ark, and professionals the Titanic.

Lesson #9: Fear is nothing more than ‘False Evidence Appearing Real’ — woodpeckers on the inside, are a greater threat than storms raging on the outside.

Lesson #10: Remain faithful and optimistic — No matter how bleak things look, if God is traveling with you, there’s always going to be a rainbow of peace on the other side of the storm.
