three men were hiking and unexpectedly came upon a large
raging, violent river. They needed to get to the other
side, but had no idea of how to do so.
The first man prayed to God, saying, "Please God,
give me the strength to cross this river." Poof!
God gave him big arms and strong legs, and he was able
to swim across the river in about two hours, after
almost drowning a couple of times.
Seeing this, the second man prayed to God, saying,
"Please God, give me the strength and the tools to
cross this river." Poof! God gave him a rowboat and
he was able to row across the river in about an hour,
after almost capsizing the boat a couple of times.
The third man had seen how this worked out for the other
two, so he also prayed to God saying, "Please God,
give me the strength and the tools...and the
intelligence... to cross this river." And poof!
God turned him into a woman. She looked at the map,
hiked upstream a couple of hundred yards, then walked
across the bridge.
