Building Arks

“Predicting rain doesn’t count. Building arks does.” – Warren Buffett

It’s pouring outside today in New York City. Streets are flooding. There will likely be property damage. Hopefully people will remain safe. Material things and memories can be made much easier than life.

It is weather like today’s that reminds me of Warren Buffett’s quote. I wonder, if God through Noah had only warned of the flood, what good is that? Love is shown only through fabrication of the Ark, no matter if people decide heed the warning and get on it or not.

As a technical artist (in church or elsewhere) I am called to be a problem solver, not just a problem warner. My job is to build an Ark, not just predict rain.
