The Man and the Flood

There was once a very heavy downpour in a village. There was an old man sitting on his porch and soon it started to flood and everyone started fleeing. The old man told everyone, “I’ll stay! God will save me!”

The flood got higher and a boat came, and the man in it offered to help but the old man replied, “No. God will save me!”

Soon the flood got very high and the man had to stand on the roof of his house. A helicopter soon came and the man offered to help the old man. “No, God will save me!” the old man again replied.

Eventually, the man drowned and goes to heaven, and he asks the angels, “Why didn’t God save me?”. But the old man failed to realise that God was trying to help him by sending the boat and the helicopter!
