Performance vs Position

A Priest dies and is awaiting his turn in line at the Heaven’s Gates.

Ahead of him is a guy, fashionably dressed, in dark sun glasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket and jeans..

God asks him: Please tell me who are you, so that I may know whether to admit you into the kingdom of Heaven or not?

The guy replies: I am Pandi, Auto driver from Chennai!

God consults his ledger, smiles and says to Pandi: Please take this silken robe and gold scarf and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Now it is the priest’s turn.

He stands erect and speaks out in a booming voice: I am Pope’s Assistant so so, Head Priest of the so so Church for the last 40 years.

God consults his ledger and says to the Priest: Please take this cotton robe and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

“Just a minute,”  says the agonized Priest. “How is it that a foul mouthed, rush driving Auto Driver is given a Silken robe and a Golden scarf; and me, a Priest, who’s spent his whole life preaching your Name and goodness has to make do with a Cotton robe?!”

“Results my friend, results,” shrugs God..

“While you preached, people SLEPT; but when he drove his Auto, people really PRAYED”

It’s PERFORMANCE and not POSITION that ultimately counts.
