The story goes that a preacher and a bus driver both passed away at the
same time and were both entering Heavens gate.

The Lord welcomed both the preacher and the bus driver in and took them
to a place over looking a serene valley with beautiful soft rolling
hills just beyond.

To the preacher he said, my son, do you see that little cottage with the
white gate and all the flowers down there in the valley? The one over
there just beyond the creek? The preacher said he did. The Lord then
told him that this was now his heavenly home and, this is where he would
be spending eternity.

The Lord then turned to the bus driver and said my son; do you see that
big stately mansion up there in the hills? The one just to the right of
the waterfall where the golden path leads up to it? The bus driver said
he did. The Lord then told him that this was now him heavenly home and,
this is where he would be spending eternity.

With this the preacher turned to the Lord and with amazement exclaimed
that there must be some mistake. "I have been your loyal servant all of
my life." He went on to explain to the Lord that he was truly a man of
God. The preacher said, "Lord, I accepted you as my savior when I was
just a child. I studied your word as a young man, than preached your
gospel the rest of my life. How can it be that I am to spend eternity
in this small cottage when the bus driver gets the mansion in the
hills?"

The Lord replied. My son, it is true that you have been my loyal
servant. And, both of you have been in a position to influence my
children. However, while you preached, my children slept. It was
while he was driving they Prayed.
