A friend just posted this question: If you were at heaven’s gates, and God asked you, “why should I let you in?”, what would you say?
My response: (confused) Hey, uh, who are you? This is my place. Yeh, I mean I used to live here. I must have lost my keys somewhere. Oh, YOU’RE God. Whoa. It’s good to meet you for real, I mean you already know me and all, but seriously uh. I mean, come on. Let me in. What I gotta do? Get down on my knees and beg?
God: You need a witness.
Me : Uh.. well..
(God moves aside with a sly grin and a welcoming gesture)
Me: Alright, you got me. Ha ha, I see. You got jokes. (As I walk through the gates) Ok, I got one. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. OK, there’s this father, this son, and this ghost. The father says..
Some of my friends answered:
“I gave more than I took.”
“You shouldn’t, I’m just here to pick up Abby and my dogs.”
“I tried really hard to put others before myself.”
“I am a faithful steward of your creation.”
“cuz i’m ready to be here. let’s get this pah-ty stah-ted”
I am sincerely interested in what you would say.
