A man dies and is met by Peter at the pearly gates.
Peter says, ‘You need 100 points to make it into Heaven. Tell me all of the good things you’ve done and I’ll give you a certain number of points for each item, depending on how good it was. When you reach 100 points, you get in.’
‘Okay,’ the man says, ‘I was married to the same woman for 50 years and never cheated on her, even in my heart.’
‘That’s wonderful,’ says Peter, ‘that’s worth three points!’
‘Three points?’ the man exclaims. ‘Well, I attended church all of my life and supported its ministry with my tithe and service.’
‘Terrific!’ says Peter, ‘that’s certainly worth a point.’
‘One point? OK, well I started a soup kitchen in my city and worked in a shelter for the homeless.’
‘Fantastic, that’s good for two more points,’ Peter says.
‘TWO POINTS!’ the man cries. ‘At this rate, the only way I’ll get into Heaven is by the Grace of God!’
‘Come on in!’
PRAY: Dear Jesus, thank you I can laugh. AMEN
