"God Helps Those Who Help Themselves"
A flood was threatening a small town and everyone was leaving for safety except one man who said, "God will save me. I have faith." As the water level rose, a jeep came to rescue him. The man refused, saying "God will save me. I have faith." As the water level rose further, he went up to the second story, and a boat came to help him. Again he refused to go, saying, "God will save me. I have faith." The water kept rising and the man climbed onto the roof. A helicopter came to rescue him, but he said, "God will save me. I have faith." Well, finally he drowned. When he reached his Maker he angrily questioned, "I had complete faith in you. Why did you ignore my prayers and let me drown?" The Lord replied, "Who do you think sent you the jeep, the boat, and the helicopter?"
