The Godly Man

flood joke

A flood was on its way, forcing everyone to evacuate. The police rowed up to the most godly man in town and said, “Sir, you will have to leave this house! People are dying out here!”

The man replied, “No, I’m not leaving. God has always helped me before, and He will do it again.”

So as the water started to rise, he went to the second story of his house. Another boat came by, and the captain yelled, “Mister, you have to get on this boat or you’re going to drown!”

The man replied again, “No, God helped me before, and He will do it again.”

The water rose even higher. This time he went to the top of his roof, where a helicopter came and hovered overhead. The pilot called into his loudspeaker, “Please climb aboard, sir. You will drown if your don’t come!”

The man shook his head and replied, “God is going to save me!”

But the water rose higher, and soon he drowned to death. He went to Heaven, and there he asked God, “Why didn’t you save me, O Lord?”

And God replied, “I tried to! I sent you two boats and a helicopter! What more did you want?”
