There was a man called Jim, who lived near a river. Jim was a very religious man. One day, the river rose over the banks and flooded the town, and Jim was forced to climb onto his porch roof. While sitting there, a man in a boat comes along and tells Jim to get in the boat with him. Jim says, "No, that's okay. God will take care of me."
The man in the boat drives off. The water rises, so Jim climbs onto his roof. At that time, another boat comes along and the person in that one tells Jim to get in. Jim replies, "No, that's okay. God will take care of me."
The person in the boat then leaves. The water rises even more, and Jim climbs on his chimney. Then a helicopter comes and lowers a ladder. The woman in the helicopter tells Jim to climb up the ladder and get in. Jim tells her, "That's okay." The woman says, "Are you sure?" Jim says, "Yeah, I'm sure God will take care of me."
Finally, the water rises too high and Jim drowns. Jim gets up to Heaven and is face-to-face with God. Jim says to God, "You told me you would take care of me! What happened?"
God replied, "Well, I sent you two boats and a helicopter. What else did you want?"
