Deeds vs. Words

There was a long line of souls before the gate of Heaven and Hell. Waiting on
line beside each other were two residents of New York City, a taxi driver and a
priest and they started chatting to kill the time. Finally, it was the taxi
driver’s turn to be judged; after talking with God for a few minutes, he was
allowed to enter heaven. The priest came after him and had his few minutes with
God. He, however, was sent to hell.
Needless to say, the priest was pretty surprised by this turn of events and
asked God why he, who had constantly talked to people about God, had been sent
to hell and a taxi driver was going to heaven. God replied, �We judge whether
one goer to heaven not by the words he has said but the deeds he has done on the
earth. While you talked about God, people slept, but they all remembered me when
he drove.”
