Scoutmaster Minute

Everything I Need to Know About Life, I Learned From Noah’s Ark

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah’s ark.

One: Don’t miss the boat.
Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat.
Three: Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
Four: Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
Five: Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
Six: Build your future on high ground.
Seven: For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
Eight: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
Nine: When you’re stressed, float a while.
Ten: Remember, the ark was built by amateurs, the Titanic by professionals.
Eleven: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting.

Scout Tip

BSA Edge Method

Explain how it is done - Tell them
Demonstrate the steps - Show them
Guide learners as they practice - Watch them do it
Enable them to succeed on their own - Use memory aids, practice it, they teach it
