God needed an apprentice. So He started interviewing candidates. 

The erudite scholar said, "God, I can recite all the religious scriptures in the world, verse by verse without a single error" 

God said, "Hmm, may be I should come learn from you some day!" 

The ambitious social worker said, "God, I am the ultimate philanthropist and social worker. I have been busy opening free hospitals, feeding the poor, raising funds for charity." 

God said, "Wow, I have been trying to get on your calendar with no luck. Well, keep up the good work." 

The humble yogi said, "God, I can sit straight for hours to receive you, irrespective of my external condition." 

God said, "Ok, you are the only one available to me". So God hired him.
