One day in a small town during really stormy weather, the town begins to flood. Everyone rushes to lifeboats and begins to flee. But in a church a priest sits on the alter and does not move. A man runs up to him. Man- “Father, come quickly, we have a lifeboat ready for you.” Priest- No, there is no need for me to flee for the Lord will provide and he will save me”. Man- “Suit yourself.” A few hours later the water has risen up to the alter where the priest is standing. A lifeboat zooms through the door with a few men in it. One man calls to the priest. Man- “Father come quickly” Priest- “No, for the Lord will provide and he will save me. So the lifeboat zooms off. A few hours later the water has risen up to the crucifix on which the priest is hanging on. A lifeboat zooms in. Man- “Father, the town is flooding, you must come with us to safety.” Priest- “No, the Lord will provide.” He will save me.” A few hours later the water rose up to the roof and the priest drowned. Later in heaven the priest met God and said: “Lord, why didn’t you save me? I had so much faith. God- “What are you talking about? I sent three lifeboats to rescue you!”
