Story: The Flood
This is a story about a simple man named Jake, who was caught in the midst of a flash flood
that struck his town. Despite the fact that he was not learned, Jake was an exceptionally pious
person, and because of this he was certain that God would send him help and rescue him.
As the waters began to flood his house, Jake grabbed his prayer book and climbed onto his
roof to pray for salvation. As the waters rose, a rowboat passed by. "Climb aboard, Jake!"
shouted those in the rowboat. But Jake replied, "Don't worry about me, I am going to be saved!"
After a while a rescue helicopter passed overhead. "Grab the rope, Jake!" they cried. Jake lifted his
hands to heaven and shouted, "It's okay. I'm going to be saved!" and he waved them on.
Just then the floodwaters rose, knocking poor Jake off the roof and drowning him. When he arrived
at the gates of heaven, he was angry and confused. "I was such a righteous man all my life," Jake
aid to God, "why didn't you save me?"
God replied, "What do you mean? I sent you a rowboat. I sent you a helicopter...
What more were you waiting for!?
It's ALL between the ears.....
