There came a big flood, and the water around Komalan’s house was rising steadily..
Komalan was standing on the porch, watching water rising all around him, when a man in a boat came along and called to Komalan, “Get in the boat and I’ll get you out of here. Komalan replied, “No thanks, God will save me.”
Komalan went into the house, and the water was starting to pour in. So, he went up to the second floor.
As he looked out, another man in a boat came along, and he called to Komalan, “Get in the boat and I’ll get you out of here.”
Again, Komalan replied, “No thanks. God will save me.”
The water kept rising. So, Komalan got out onto the roof.
A helicopter flew over, and the pilot called down to Komalan, “I’ll drop you a rope,grab onto it, and I’ll get you out of here.”
Again Komalan replied, “No thanks. God will save me.”
The water rose and rose, and soon nearly covered the whole house. Komalan fell in, and drowned.
When he arrived in Heaven, he saw God, and asked Him, “Why didn’t you save me from that terrible flood? Did I not show you my faith?”
With a loving but irritated tone God replied, “What more would you have me do? I sent people in two boats and a helicopter?”
