PERFORMANCE & not POSITION

A Priest dies & is awaiting his turn in line at the Heaven's Gates.



Ahead of him is a guy, fashionably dressed, in dark sun glasses, a long

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 Pandi, Auto driver from Chennai!



God consults his ledger, smiles & says to Pandi: 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, people

PRAYED'



"It's PERFORMANCE & not POSITION that ultimately counts."
