A man was caught in a flood and climbed onto the roof of his house. "Lord save me!" he cried into the rain.
A man floating by in a canoe back-paddled and offered him a lift to safety. The man replied "No, the Lord will save me."
Later on, with the water rising, a motorboat came by and offered the man a lift. The man replied, "No thank you, the Lord will save me."
When the man was perched on the very ridgepole with water up to his waist, a helicopter hovered overhead and offered to drop a rope and winch him aboard. The man replied, "No thank you, the Lord will save me."
The man drowned soon after. He found himself in front of the unimaginable majesty of God. Prostrating himself, he wailed, "Lord, why did you not save me!"
God looked at him for a second and said, "I sent two boats and a helicopter. What more did you want?"
