Once upon a time three Air Force Officers were walking through the woods and suddenly they were standing in front of a huge, wild river. But they desperately had to get to the other side. But how, with such a raging torrent? The first Officer knelt down and prayed to the Lord: ?Lord, please give me the strength to cross this river! "
The Lord gave him long arms and strong legs. Now he could swim across the river. It took him about two hours and he almost drowned several times. BUT: he was successful!
The second Officer, who observed this, prayed to the Lord and said: ?Lord, please give me the strength AND the necessary tools to cross this river!?
The Lord gave him a tub and he managed to cross the river despite the fact that the tub almost capsized a couple of times.
The third Officer who observed all this knelt down and prayed: ?Lord, please give me the strength, the means and the intelligence to cross this river!?
The Lord converted the Officer into an SSM. The SSM took a quick glance on the map, walked a few meters upstream and crossed the bridge.
