God, help me!

Let go of the branch

A man was walking along a narrow path not paying much attention to where he was going. Suddenly, he slipped over the edge of a cliff. As he was falling, he grabbed the branch growing from the side of the cliff and hung on for dear life. After several moments, he realized that he couldn’t hang on for much longer so he cried out for help.

Man: Is anyone up there?

Voice: Yes, I’m here!

Man: Who’s that?

Voice: It’s God.

Man: God, help me!

Voice: Do you trust me?

Man: I trust you completely.

Voice: Good. Let go of the branch.

Man: What?!

Voice: I said, let go of the branch.

Man: (After a long a pause) Is anybody else up there?
