120 years later, and with virtually no warning, it came.

Would you stand out as being righteous or are you basically the same as everybody else?

A lazy person would likely delay delay delay until it was too late to finish, but not Noah. The fact that he was able to finish this mammoth project with likely very little help outside of his own family is a testament to the abilities God has given man at all times and ages.
