There was a small village on the bank of a river. People were mainly depending on fishing and were happy with their lives. It was monsoon season, and it rained very slowly, and the river started overflowing soon. The flood entered into the village. Everybody evacuated their homes and left for save a place for rescue, but one man ran towards the church which was in the middle of the village.
He found the priest was in the church and praying about his wellbeing to god. The man pleaded the priest to leave the church and come with him to save place, but the priest answered: “I am not an atheist like you, the God has created me, and he would save me if he wants.” The man soon left the priest and ran for a safe place.
The water level rose to the waist height, and the priest jumped on a desk. A man in a boat came to rescue the priest, but the priest refused to go and told him the same reason as earlier.
The water kept on rising, and soon it reached the ceiling level. The priest climbed on the rooftop and continued praying to God to save him. Soon the rescue team came with a Helicopter, and they dropped a ladder, but the priest denied to go quoting the same reason. The helicopter left that place to search and rescue others.
At last, the church was completely submerged, and the priest could barely keep his head above the water. He remembered God and complained about not rescuing him. The God appeared in front of him with a smile and said: “Oh my child, I came three times to save you, but you always denied, what is my fault in it that you didn’t recognize me?”
The priest understood his mistake and requested for forgiveness from God. Soon, he got the eye of another rescue team, and they took him to a safe place.
Moral of the story- Life always gives us the opportunity in some form or the other, and we need to grab them.
