There is a town in France, which was flooding.
Some people escaped to the roof of the church.
The priest, however, stayed and said, “Let God come.”
Someone came to save him but the priest said, “God will save me.”
He refused to get in, maintaining that God will save him.
Then a boat came to rescue him. He refused to get in, maintaining that God will save him.
Finally a helicopter came, but he sent that away too.
When he passed over to the other world, the priest said, “Oh God, I prayed to you so much, but you did not save me.”
Upon hearing this, God responded, “My foolish servant, I sent you a man and you didn’t come.
I sent you a boat and you didn’t get in.
I sent you a helicopter and you didn’t board. What more could I have done?
