# The Beauty of Math

Note from Brad: Sue Wirsing recently gave me the following article. (It couldn’t come from me, since it involves math!) It is a good reminded of the foundational nature of God’s love for us! I hope you’ll be encouraged by it.

What equals 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to GIVE over 100%. How about achieving 101%? What equals 100% in life?

There’s a little mathematical formula that might help answer these questions.

If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

If: H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K =

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E =

11+14+15+23+12 +5+4+7+5 = 96%

but

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E =

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

then

Look how far the Love of God will take you.

L-O-V-E O-F G-O-D

12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+5 = 101%

Therefore we can conclude with mathematical certainty that while hard work and knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it is The Love of God that will put you over the top!
