Someone gleaned the following time management principles from the account of Noah’s ark:
1: Don’t miss the boat. God has something He wants you to accomplish.
2: Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.
3: Stay fit. When you’re 60 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
4: Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
5: Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs. God honors persistence and diligence.
6: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals. God’s way of doing things might not always be man’s way.
7: No matter the storm, when you are doing what God wants, there’s always a rainbow waiting so don’t give up, keep these lessons from Noah’s ark in mind and redeem the time.
