The Minister and Taxi Driver

A Methodist minister from Wisconsin and a taxi driver from New York City are at the Pearly Gates waiting to meet with St. Peter.

St. Peter calls the taxi driver over to him and says, "Tell me your name so that I will know whether or not to let you into the Kingdom of Heaven."

The taxi driver tells him his name, St. Peter looks on a scroll, then says, "Here, take this silk robe and golden staff. You may enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

Then the minister's up next. St. Peter tells him, "Tell me your name so that I will know whether or not to let you into the Kingdom of Heaven."

The minister tells him his name, St. Peter looks on the scroll, and tells him, "Here, take this wool robe and wooden staff. You may enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

Of course, the minister was outraged at this and said, "Hey, wait a minute! I dedicated most of my life to God as a minister and all I get is this wool robe and wooden staff while that other guy was a taxi driver and gets a silk robe and golden staff?! How could this be?!"

St. Peter looks at him and calmly explains, "Well, up here, we work by results. While you preached, people slept. While that other guy drove, people prayed."
