From a strictly mathematical viewpoint, 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% in what they do?
How about achieving 101%?
What equals 100% in life?
If A to Z is represented as
A = 1
B = 2
C = 3
Et cetera until Z = 26,
H – A – R – D – W – O – R – K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
K – N – O – W – L – E – D – G – E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 95%
A – T – T – I – T – U – D – E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
It doesn't end there. Look at how much farther you can go.
L – O – V – E O – F G – O – D
12+15+22+5 15+6+ 7+15+4 = 101%
We can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while hard work and knowledge will get you close, and attitude will get you there, it's the love of God that will put you over the top.
And where do we start? We start of course with ourselves. Like everybody else, you and me, we are never perfect, no one is. So don't pretend to be, you're only fooling yourself. Admit your mistakes so then you can think of ways to make amends. Decide when it's not too late yet. The good news though is, nothing is ever too late in the eyes of God. So even if it's too late in others' eyes, you can still make things right. Begin with a change in attitude as you see right, and include a pocketful of prayers while you're at it, to get to the top 101%.
