Title: Performance and Position

A Priest dies and is waiting for 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 & 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 Pandu, Auto driver from Pune!”

God consults his ledger, smiles & says to Pandu:

“Please take this Silken Robe & Gold Scarf & 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 & says to the Priest;

“Please take this Cotton Robe & enter the Kingdom of Heaven”

'Just a minute,' says the agonized Priest. 'How is it that a foul mouthed, rash driving Auto Driver is given a Silken robe & a Golden scarf and me, a Priest, who's spent his whole life 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 Rickshaw, people PRAYED'

Moral:

It's PERFORMANCE & not POSITION that Ultimately Counts.
