Q Who was the greatest financier in the Bible
A Noah - He was floating his stock while everyone else was in liquidation
SUPER SATURDAY/ The wisdom of age
Consider how wise Noah must have been after having lived several centuries.
Wisdom is one of the great blessings of aging. I’ve noticed that most people whom I talk to who are in the last third of their lives would not actually want to live their 20’s, 30’s, or even 40’s again. Or, if they do, they’d want to live it with the Wisdom they’ve already earned.
We all face pitfalls in our lives. Distractions, doubt, and discouraging delays. Noah faced these pitfalls too and overcame them. We can use the lessons of Noah as he looked ahead and prepared for what was to come. We live in the present moment but we are wise to look ahead. By doing that we'll not only be prepared to spot the pitfalls when they come into our lives and we'll be prepared to apply the antidote to them.
Noah did not depend on his own desires to rule his actions. He had the option to choose whether or not to enter the ark. He choose life. If you knew that an impending disaster, such as a flood or hurricane was about to destroy your home and threaten your life wouldn't you make preparation to escape and find refuge in a safe place?
And that is really the bottom line of all our lives. Make the right choices.
Moment by moment, day by day, we make choices and hopefully they will be wise ones when we have a little help from above.
Have a SUPER Saturday everyone!
