A man stayed in his house as a flood engulfed his town. Two men in a rowboat came to his house and offered to take him to safety. "No, thank you," the man said, "God will help me." As the waters rose, the man retreated to the second floor of his house. Two men in a motorboat came by and offered to rescue him. Again, the man declined, saying, "No, thank you, God will help me." As the waters rose still higher, the man went on to the roof of his house. A helicopter came by, and threw down a rope, urging the man to grab it and be pulled up into the helicopter. Once more, the man declined and said, "No, thank you, God will help me." Whereupon a mighty voice called out to the man, "You idiot!" I sent you a rowboat, a motorboat, and now a helicopter. What more do you want me to do?"
