After a preacher dies and goes to Heaven, he notices that a New York cab driver has been awarded a higher place.

“I don’t understand,” he complains to Saint Peter. “I devoted my entire life to my congregation.”

“Our policy here in Heaven is to reward results,” St. Peter explained. “Now, did your congregation pay attention every time you gave a sermon?”

“Well,” the minister admitted,” some in the congregation fell asleep from time to time.”

“Exactly,” said Peter. “And when people rode in this man’s taxi, they not only stayed awake, they prayed nonstop.”
