Taxi Driver In Heaven
A minister has just died and is standing in line waiting to be judged and admitted to Heaven. While waiting he asks the man in front of him about himself.
The man says, “I was a taxi driver from New York City.” The angel standing at the gate calls out “next,” and the taxi driver steps up.
The angel hands him a golden staff and a cornucopia of fruits, cheeses, and wine and lets him pass. The taxi driver looks pleased and proceeds through the gates into heaven.
The minister begins to think about the richness he’ll get upon his entrance.
But instead, the angel hands him a wooden staff and some bread and water.
The minister is very concerned and asks the angel, “That guy is a taxi driver and gets a golden staff and a cornucopia! I spend my entire life as a minister and get next to nothing! How can that be?”
The angel replies, “Up here we judge on results. All of your people slept through your sermons. In his taxi, they prayed.“
