A group of wise men gathered to discuss the works of God, and wanted to know why he had left it to the sixth day to create man.
“He thought about first organizing the Universe so well, that we could have all the marvels available to us,” said one of them.
“First of all God wanted to run some tests on animals, so that he would not make the same mistakes with us,” argued another.
Finally a wise Rabbi joined the meeting. They told him about the theme of the discussion and one asked: “In your opinion why did God leave it to the last day to create man?”
“Very simple,” said the Rabbi, “So that when we were moved by pride, we would remember that even a simple mosquito enjoyed priority in the work of the Divine.”
