A man finds himself standing before Saint Peter at the gates
“Looking back at your life I cannot find any examples of you
doing anything really good for others,” said St. Peter.
“Unfortunately I cannot give you a crown for service because
I cannot find any examples of you doing something really
good for someone else in the name of Christ. If you can give
me just one example of how your life benefited someone
else, I’ll let you have the crown.”
Without hesitation the man said, “I was having breakfast at a
diner on the main highway when a gang of diners started to
abuse the waitress. I quickly grabbed the butcher knife the
cook had left at the end of the counter and yelled at the
apparent leader of the gang to leave her alone or I’d teach
them a lesson.”
“Wow, that certainly would qualify but I do not see it in my
book.” said St. Peter.
