A big flood hit a village. Everyone was evacuated and fled for safety, except for one man who said, “God will save me; I have faith”.
As the water level rose, a jeep came to rescue him but he refused help and said, “God will save me; I have faith”.
As the water level rose further, he went up to the second story, and a boat came to help him. Again he refused to go saying, “God will save me; I have faith”.
The water kept rising and finally he climbed to the roof. A helicopter came to rescue him, but he said, “God will save me; I have faith”.
Finally he drowned. When he came face to face with his Maker he angrily commented, I have complete faith in you. Why did you ignore my prayers and let me drown?
The Lord replied, who do you think sent the jeep, the boat, and the helicopter?
Moral of the story: We must be accountable for what we do and not blame others for our shortcoming. We have to take the necessary action to help ourselves, rather than waiting, wishing and wondering what is happening in life. Nobody will help you unless you first decide to help yourself.
Take action right now and do not waste any minute. We are responsible for our own failure or success!!
Making the beginning is one third of the work
