When Brother Martin died and went to heaven, he was met at the front gate by St. Peter, who let him know that he needed one hundred points to make it in the pearly gates. "You tell me all the good things you’ve done, and I’ll give you points according to your deeds. When you reach one hundred, I’ll swing open the gates."
"Okay, "Ted reported, "I was head usher at First Baptist for fifty years."
"That’s wonderful", says St. Peter, "that’s worth two points."
"I was married to the same woman for almost sixty-five years and never cheated on her."
"Remarkable," Peter declared, "here are  three more points."
"Only three?" Ted frowned. "How about this? I started a soup kitchen in the inner city and worked in a homeless shelter."  "Terrific, and here are two more points."
Ted’s eyes opened wide, and he yelled, "Two points!  At this rate the only way I’ll get into heaven is by the grace of God!"
                "Come on in!"

A minster waited in line to have his car filled with gas before a long holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars in front and in back of him. Finally the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump. "Reverend," said the young man, "sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip."

      The minister chuckled, "I know exactly what you mean. It’s the same in my kind of business."


Didn’t someone say that many a truths are said in jest? …..Just something to think about.
