Minister vs Taxi driver in Heaven
A minister died and went to heaven. Before him in the queue to see St Peter was a loudmouth man with a loud shirt, chain pants, and a loud hat. St Peter asked the guy what he had done for a living.
The man said, "I was a taxi cab driver in Noo Yawk city." St Peter handed him a silk robe and a golden staff.
Next up was the minister. St Peter asked him what he had done for a living. He stood up very straight, and spoke in a loud clear voice, "I am John C. Maxwell, bishop of St Mary's Church." St Peter handed him a cotton robe and a regular staff.
"What?" said the bishop. "You let that taxi cab driver have a silk robe and a golden staff but not me?"
St Peter replied, "Up here we work by results ...
"Whilst you preached, people slept, while he drove, people prayed."
