There once was a very rich man who wanted to take his wealth with him when he died. He prayed and prayed until the Lord gave in, but on one condition – he could only take one suitcase of his wealth.
The rich man began to worry, "What kind of currency should I take – the dollar, the pound, the euro, the yen?" He finally decided to turn everything into gold bullion.
The day came when God called him home. St. Peter told him that he couldn’t bring in his suitcase with him. The man explained that he had an agreement with God.
"That’s unusual," St. Peter said. "Mind if I take a look?"
The man opened his suitcase to reveal the shining gold bullion.
"Why in heaven would you bring pavement?" St. Peter exclaimed
