Help from God
A man caught in a terrible flood climbed on top of his house to avoid the rushing water and prayed to God that he’d be saved.
A few minutes later a boat came by and offered him a ride. “No, thank you,” he said, “I trust God to rescue me.” A few minutes later a helicopter flew overhead and dropped down a rope ladder. His response was the same.
Finally, another boat came by and offered to help him, but no, he was waiting on God.
He was eventually lost in the flood, and in heaven asked God why he didn’t save him. God’s response was simple: “I tried three times, but you wouldn’t accept my help!”
