The Preacher and the Flood

December 3rd, 2008

One Sunday a preacher was delivering his sermon when it started raining very hard. Soon the area around the church began to flood, and the congregation evacuated to higher ground. However, the stubborn preacher remained standing in front of the church in ankle-deep water.

A man in a car stopped and said, “Preacher, Preacher you better get in here before you drown!”

The preacher replied, “Don’t worry, God will save me.”

When the water was knee-deep, a man in a raft came to the preacher and said, “Preacher, Preacher you better get in here before you drown!”

The preacher replied again, “Don’t worry, God will save me.”

The preacher was standing in waist-deep water, and a man in a motorboat came to him and said “Preacher, Preacher you better get in here before you drown!”

Despite this third warning the preacher replied “Don’t worry, God will save me.”

With the water now neck-deep, a helicopter hovered near the preacher and the pilot said over the loudspeaker, “Preacher, Preacher you better get in here before you drown!”

The preacher responded, “Don’t worry, God will save me.”

The preacher finally drowned. When he opened his eyes he was in heaven. He saw God and asked “God! Why didn’t you save me from that horrible flood?”

God replied, “I sent you a car, a raft, a motorboat, and a helicopter! What else do you want from me?”
