I heard about two men that died and arrived in Heaven almost at the same time. As expected, they joined the queue of people waiting for their afterlife apparels, and allocation to either Heaven or Hell.
The first man appeared in torn, dirty, faded jeans, and had loads of thick golden chains on his neck, wrists, and ankles. He also had numerous golden rings on his fingers, and wore a very loud golden wrist watch. He looked very much like someone who lived a carefree life on earth.
When he got to the front of the queue, the angel on duty looked at him, and said ‘your name is MIKE GIDDY 0-TEN; taxi driver, New York City’. Afterwards, He (the Angel) smiled, and gave him a dazzling white garment, a golden crown, golden pair of shoes, and a golden staff. After that, He said welcome home son!
Next was the second man! He looked very neat, sober, and righteous. The Angel looked at him, and said ‘your name is Most Reverend Donald Clean; Senior Pastor in charge of Clean House Ministries, New York City’. Then, He gave him an ordinary white garment, a white cap, a pair of white sandals, and a wooden staff. Lastly, He said welcome home son!
Immediately, the Reverend gentleman lost his temper, and said ‘Hey Angel, what do you think you are doing? Why should you give that man great stuffs, and me trash?
Calmly, the Angel replied as follows: ‘Son, I haven’t done anything wrong! Here we reward people based on their achievements. This man did more for Heaven, because while he drove, people prayed, but while you preached, people slept!
