Exactly

Raging floods in the heartland had forced a man to the second story of his home. Rescuers in a boat came by and pleaded with the man to jump in. “No,” he said. “My faith will save me.”

Soon, the rising waters forced him to the roof. Another boat came by, again calling for him to jump in. “No. My faith will save me.”

Finally, while standing upon his chimney, a helicopter flew by with a ladder lowered, and yet again called for him to save himself. Steadfast, he cried out that his faith would save him and waved the chopper on. The water rose, and the man drowned.

In the Afterlife, while standing before the Supreme Being in which he believed, he asked, “Why did you let this happen to me? I believed in you!”

The Supreme Being replied “Hey, I sent you two boats and a helicopter. What more do you want from me?” Heh.

    Yes indeedy, this makes a good point. It goes very well with the old saying “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth!”

    Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Blogging is really slow today. It’s usually down a lot on Sunday, but today it’s really down.

    Blessings! :)

    “Well, the first boat smelled of fish; the second boat had no cushions for the seats; the helicopter was simply too noisy. Next time, keep the comfort and personal tastes of those who cry out to you in mind, won’t you? After all, I was acustomed to nice carpeting on the floor, air conditioning and good soundproofing to keep the noises of the world at bay whenever I went to church. How could You expect me to accept such low-quality help from you?”

    And so another “cultural Christian” discovers it ain’t all about his personal taste and comfort… or does he?
