The priest and the tuk-tuk driver

A Priest dies and is waiting in line
at Heaven's Gates. Ahead of him is
a guy, fashionably dressed, in dark
sun glasses, a loud shirt, leather
jacket & jeans.

 
God asks the guy:
"Who are you? I must check if you qualify to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. "

The guy replies:
My name is Paradorn, the tuk-tuk driver from Chiangmai.

God checks his record, smiles
& says to Paradorn:
  
"Take this Silk robe & Gold scarf & enter
the Kingdom of Heaven".


Now it is the priest's turn. He
stands erect and speaks confidently
I am Pope's Assistant... Head Priest 
of the ...Church ...for the last 40 years.  


God checks his record & says to
the Priest:
"Take this cotton robe & enter the Kingdom of Heaven".

'Just a minute,' says the surprised
Priest. 'How come that foul-mouthed,
rash driving auto driver gets a Silk
robe & a Gold scarf but me, a Priest,
who's spent a lifetime of preaching
your Name & 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.
