There was a great storm that caused a flood and water was steadily rising. A devout man lived in a tall house and decided to wait it out. While he was looking out the first floor window he saw a boat. It stopped in front of his house. The captain said, “Come aboard. If you stay you will die.” The man replied, “Oh no, God will save me.” The boat left.
The water rose and he moved to the 3rd floor. A boat came along and the captain said, “Get in. The water is rising. If you stay you will die.” The man replied, “Oh no, God will save me.” The boat left.
Finally the man was on the roof and another boat came. The captain said, “There will be no more boats. You will surely die if you do not get on this one.” The man replied, “Oh no, God will save me.”
The man drowned and went to heaven but he was very angry with God. He screamed, “Why did you not save me? I’ve always been good and done what you asked and you let me die.” God replied, “Who do you think sent the boats?”
Ever since 3rd grade I’ve lived my life trying not to miss boats.
