A German once visited a temple under construction where he saw a 
sculptor making an idol of God. Suddenly he noticed a similar idol 
lying nearby. Surprised, he asked the sculptor, "Do you need two 
statues of the same idol?" "No," said the sculptor without looking up, 
"We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage." 
The gentleman examined the idol and found no apparent damage. "Where is 
the damage?" he asked. "There is a scratch on the nose of the idol." 
said the sculptor, still busy with his work. "Where are you going to 
install the idol?"
 
The sculptor replied that it would be installed on a pillar twenty feet 
high.. "If the idol is that far, who is going to know that there is a 
scratch on the nose?" the gentleman asked. The sculptor stopped his 
work, looked up at the gentleman, smiled and said, "God will know it."
