A man, who had garnered a lot of wealth in his life, wanted to take it with him. He talked to God about it and finally God told him, yes, he could bring whatever he wanted.
The man decided that checks, cash, and savings bonds wouldn’t work, so he transferred most of his assets to gold, packed his suitcases, and got to take them with him.
When he arrived at the Pearly Gates, St. Peter said, “Wait. No one brings anything in.”
“No,” the man said. “God told me I could bring this. It’s really important to me and I didn’t want to be without it.” He opened his suitcase so that St. Peter could see his amazing treasure.
“Pavement? You brought pavement?”
This joke brought to you from Dr. B at my son’s congregation.
