A cab driver reaches the Pearly Gates and announces his presence to St. Peter,
who looks him up in his Big Book. Upon reading the entry for the cabbie, St.
Peter invites him to pick up a silk robe and a golden staff and to proceed into
Heaven.

A preacher is next in line behind the cabby and has been watching
these proceedings with interest. He announces himself to St. Peter. Upon
scanning the preacher's entry in the Big Book, St. Peter furrows his brow and
says, "Okay, we'll let you in, but take that cloth robe and wooden staff."

The preacher is astonished and replies, "But I am a man of the cloth. You gave
that cab driver a gold staff and a silk robe. Surely I rate higher than a
cabbie."

St. Peter responded matter-of-factly: "this is heaven and, up here,
we are interested in results. When you preached, people slept. When the cabbie
drove his taxi, people prayed."
