What we should learn from the story of Noah's Ark!

I just came back from services and this week's story was that of Noah's Ark.
The lay-leader shared this bit of humor prior to the reading:

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 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 & 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.
  • No matter how bleak it looks, there's always a rainbow on the other side.
