A minister dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him is a guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt,leather jacket and jeans.

Saint Peter addresses this cool guy, "Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?

"The guy replies, "I'm Peter Pilot, retired Delta Airlines Pilot from Miami."

Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the pilot, "Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom." The pilot goes into Heaven with his robe and staff.

Next it's the minister's turn. He stands erect and booms out, "I am Joseph Snow, pastor of Saint Mary's for the last 43 years."

Saint Peter consults his list.He says to the minister, "Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom.

""Just a minute," says the minister, "that man was a pilot and he gets a silken robe and golden staff, and I get only cotton and wood.? How can this be?""

Up here, we work by results," says Saint Peter, "While you preached, people slept; while he flew - - people prayed.
