Waiting for God



There was a huge flood and the flood waters were rising quickly. A man was sitting on the porch of his house and another man came by in a row boat. The man in the row boat told the man on the porch to get in and he'd save him. The man on the porch 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. He had perfect faith in God and would wait for God to save him.

The flood waters kept rising. Pretty soon they were up to the man's roof and he got out on the roof. A helicopter then came by and lowered a rope. The pilot shouted down for the man in the house to climb up the rope because the helicopeter had come to rescue him. The man in the house wouldn't climb up the rope. 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." 

Lesson: If you find yourself in trouble and someone offers to help, take it. That's God way of saving you!
