A man died and met Saint Peter at the pearly gates. Realizing Saint Peter was a wise and knowledgeable person, he said, “Saint Peter, I have been interested in military history for many years. Tell me who was the greatest general of all times?”
Saint Peter quickly responded, “Oh, that’s a simple question. It is that man right over there,” as he pointed nearby.
The man said, “You must be mistaken, Saint Peter. I knew that man on earth. He was just a common laborer.”
“That’s right, my friend,” replied Saint Peter. “But he would have been the greatest general of all time — if he had been a general.”
