As I did a search on the Internet on “Noah’s Ark”, I came across a webpage where there was a colourful picture of the Noah’s Ark with the title: “Everything I Really Need to Know I learned from Noah’s Ark. Then it was followed by these statements:

 Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.

 Stay fit. When you are 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 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 flight – free flat!!!

We may smile at these statements, but do you know something? What God really wanted Noah and his descendents to know is not mentioned in the list. God told Noah immediately after he left the ark about the conditions under which he and his descendents were to live. Unfortunately, most Sunday school lessons and adult bible studies rarely deal with any of the stipulations of the covenant God made with humanity through Noah. All we learn and remember about the flood story was the sign of the covenant – namely the rainbow; nothing about its content.
