In Line At The Pearly Gates

A minister died and he was waiting in line at the Pearly Gates to be admitted to Heaven.

He has been there rather a long time, as there was rather a long queue of people waiting to get into Heaven and he was becoming rather impatient.

Ahead of him was this guy who was dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket, and jeans.

Saint Peter addressed the man, “Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?”

The guy replied, “I’m Joe Cohen, taxi driver, of Noo Yawk City.”

Saint Peter consulted his list.

A few minutes later, he smiled and said to the taxi driver, “Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”

The taxi driver went into Heaven with his robe and staff and it was then the minister’s turn to pass the admission process.

The minister walked up to the pearly gates, stood erect and boomed out, “I am Joseph Snow and I was the pastor of Calvary for the last forty-three years.”

Saint Peter consulted his list.

Having found the entry for the minister, Saint Peter turned to him and said, “Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”

“Just a minute,” the minister said. “That man was a taxi driver and he got a silken robe and golden staff. How can this be?”

“Up here, we work by results,” Saint Peter replied. “While you preached, people slept; while he drove, people prayed.”
