No Profit in Waiting For God

 


After a major storm, a flood had overtaken the town. 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’d save him.

The man on the stoop said, “no, I have faith in God and will wait for God to save me.”

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. I have perfect faith in God and will wait for God to save me.”

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, lowered a rope and the pilot shouted down to the man in the house to climb up the rope because the helicopter had come to rescue him.

The man in the house wouldn’t get in. He told the pilot, I have faith in God and will wait for God to rescue me.”

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.
“After all, I sent you two boats and a helicopter!”

Courtesy of me, because it ties in to Esther’s story.
