Preacher and Cabbie
After a preacher died and went to heaven, he noticed that a New York cab driver had been awarded a higher place than he.
I don't understand, he complained to Saint Peter. I devoted my entire life to my congregation.
Our policy here in Heaven is to reward results, Saint Peter explained. Now, was your congregation well attuned to you whenever you gave a sermon?
Well, the minister had to admit, some in the congregation fell asleep from time to time.
Exactly, said Saint Peter. And when people rode in this man's taxi, they not only stayed awake, they prayed nonstop.
