Saint Peter addresses this guy, Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven? The guy replies, Im Joe Cohen, taxi-driver, of New York City.Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the taxi-driver, Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.The taxi-driver goes into Heaven with his robe and staff, and its the ministers turn.He stands erect and booms out, I am Joseph Snow, pastor of Saint Marys for the last forty-three years.Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the minister, Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.Just a minute, says the minister. That man was a taxi-driver and he gets a silken robe and golden staff. How can this be?Up here, we work by results, says Saint Peter. While you preached, people slept; while he drove, people prayed.
