Who’s an insignificant speck of dust?

A rab­bi, feel­ing spir­i­tu­al­ly moved, dropped to his knees in his study to begin pray­ing: “Exalt­ed God, Thou who art every­thing, I am but an insignif­i­cant speck of dust in your cosmos….Thy will be done, not mine….” and so forth and so on.

Just then the can­tor hap­pened to come by, and, also spir­i­tu­al­ly moved, dropped down to his knees to pray: “Exalt­ed God, Thou who art every­thing, I am but an insignif­i­cant speck of dust in your cos­mos,…” and so forth and so on.

By chance, the building’s jan­i­tor hap­pened to over­hear the two men pray­ing. He too was spir­i­tu­al­ly moved, and dropped down to his knees – “Exalt­ed God, Thou who art every­thing, I am but an insignif­i­cant speck of dust in your cos­mos…”

At which point the can­tor nudged the rab­bi to whis­per, “Hmpf! Now look who thinks he’s an insignif­i­cant speck of dust….”
