Last week, someone found my blog by searching for quotes on the quadratic formula. I’m pretty sure I disappointed them. So, I came up with this plan to write some really good quotes about the quadratic equation, but I’m having a hard time writing a quote about something I really don’t understand. There’s a reason why trigonometry was my least favorite class in high school, and it’s not because of the teacher. She was great.
The whole reason I put quadratic formula in the title for this day’s blog offering anyway was because it represented something I didn’t understand, but wanted to know more about. Perhaps I should have put the Book of Revelation or the sound board up there, but those things don’t begin with the letter “Q”.
I wish I did know more about math. I have this suspicion that having a better grasp on the math of things would actually point to God’s character and incredibleness. Some people say we shouldn’t connect the person of God with science or math, but I think that knowledge and computations will lead us directly to the feet of God. But not yet. For now, we rely on faith. Believing when the facts don’t make sense and when the numbers don’t all add up. Faith. It’s the crossroads all men eventually find themselves standing in front of, and when they factor out all the messed up and broken examples of belief, they either find love and forgiveness or embrace themselves and nothingness.
Have you found yourself at the crossroads yet? Or are you still crunching the numbers and weighing your options? Or maybe you’ve made your choice, but have found the road doesn’t look like you thought it would. I hope each of you find peace, love and forgiveness, and a better understanding of what is real and what is not.
“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
