ert was out on a wilderness walk when he stumbled and fell off a cliff. As Bert was falling, he was able to grab on to a small tree growing out of the rock wall. Hanging from this small tree, he cried for help. "Anyone up there? Help!"

Just as he cried for the second time, he heard a voice. "Bert!" Bert looked up in amazement and yelled, "Who is that?" The voice called back, "God!" Bert joyfully replied, "Please, God, help me."

The voice replied, "If you have faith in me, let go of the tree and I shall save you." Bert hesitated for a second and yelled, "Help! Is there anyone else up there?"
