The king ruling this place asked his accountant to submit the temple accounts to him.  The books were not up to date.  He was reluctant to go before the king.  Next day, the king called the accountant and paid rich tributes saying that of the temple accounts maintained so far, his was perfect and correct.  The accountant came to know that it was Lord’s grace that He went and submitted the books.
