|It was flooding in California.
As the flood waters were rising, a man was on the stoop of his house and another man in a row boat came by.
The man in the row boat told the man on the stoop to get in and he would save him.
The man on the stoop said, no, he had faith in God and would wait for God to save him.
The flood waters kept rising and the man had to go to the second floor of his house.
A man in a motor boat came by and told the man in the house to get in because he had come to rescue him.
The man in the house said no thank you.
The flood waters kept rising.
Pretty soon he got upstairs and he got out on the roof.
A helicopter then came by, lowered a rope and the pilot shouted down in the man in the house to climb up the rope because the helicopter had come to rescue him.
The man in the house would not get in.
He told the pilot that he had faith in God and would wait for God to rescue him.
The flood waters kept rising and the man in the house drowned.
When he got to heaven, he asked God where he went wrong.
He told God that he had perfect faith in God, but God had let him drown.
“What more do you want from me?” asked God, “I sent you two boats and a helicopter!”
