Heavenly Occupations

Two men arrive in heaven at the same time. Saint Peter asked them to step forward and give their name and occupation.

The first man stepped up and said, “I’m Eric, and I was a taxi driver.”

Saint Peter reviewed his list and handed him a silk robe along with a gold staff before welcoming him to heaven.

The next man stepped forward and said, “I’m Glen, and I was a minister.”

Saint Peter reviewed his list and handed him a cotton robe along with a wooden staff before welcoming him to heaven.

A bit taken aback, the minister said, “I don’t mean to seem ungrateful, but the man in front of me received silk and gold.”

Saint Peter replied, “We judge by results. While you preached, people slept. While he drove, people prayed.”
