From a comment at Nice Jewish Girl:
One time, a flood covered the land. A man sat on his front porch, praying. A pickup truck screeched to a halt, and the driver urged him to leave, to no avail. “God will save me.”
The waters rose higher. The man climbed to the roof. A boat came along, and still the man refused assistance.
The waters rose higher still. The Coast Guard helicopter approached, but the man stood his ground. No amount of pleading would budge him. He would pass the test of faith.
He drowned and woke in Heaven. Approaching God, he asked, “Why have I failed you? Why didn’t you save me?”
God replied, “Are you kidding? I sent you a truck, and a boat, and a helicopter.”
