A young grandson asked his grandfather how a person gets to heaven. The grandfather replied, "You must love God, confess your sins, and tell God that you're sorry and try to be good."

The child then stated: "Papa, I know that you will get to go to heaven."

When asked how he knew this, the boy replied: "Because you sell life insurance."
