A good story

A man dies and goes to heaven. Of course,  St. Peter meets him at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter says, “Here’s how it  works.  You need 100 points to make it into heaven. You tell me all the  good things you’ve done,  and I give you a certain number of points for  each item depending on how good it was.  When you reach 100 points,  you get in.”  
 
“Okay,” the man says, “I was married to the same  woman for 50 years and never cheated on her, even in my heart.”   
 
“That’s wonderful,” says St.Peter, “that’s worth three points!”   
 
“Three points?” he says. “Well, I attended church all my life and  supported its ministry with my tithe and service.”  
 
“Terrific!” says  St.Peter. “That’s certainly worth a point.”  
 
“One point!?!!”   
 
“I started a soup kitchen in my city and worked in a shelter for  homeless veterans.”  
 
“Fantastic, that’s good for two more points,” he  says. 
 
 “Two points!?!! “Exasperated, the man cries.  
 
“At this  rate the only way I’ll get into heaven is by the grace of God.”   
 
“Bingo, 100 points!  Come on in!”  
 
We often try to fix  problems with WD-40 and duct tape. 
 But, God did it with a  nail
