Reward or Punishment?

The Meenister’s Log

A saintly old pillar of the Kirk  died

During his many years in the Pulpit, he had fulminated against the permissive society, pornography and sex in all its shapes and forms

He had led a moral and blameless life, and on his deathbed, one of his Elders said that, given the morally strong and courageous man he was,  he would surely get his reward in heaven.

Soon after this saint of the Kirk died, one of his flock passed away and he too reached heaven.

He said to St.Peter – “where is our beloved auld meenster?  He must be somewhere enjoying the delights of this Paradise– he must have been given all the joys that only heaven can provide.”

And then suddenly he saw the old Reverend underneath a beautiful tree…  — with the most beautiful, nubile, gorgeous young woman sitting in his lap, both naked, hugging each other!

The Kirk member fell at the feet of the old minister & said , “Reverend Sir,  God is so pleased with you, he has given you this lovely young woman as a reward!” 

The auld Meenister looked  at him and said, ” She is not my reward, I am her punishment!
