Dogs & Algebra

God's love, Bible, teach a dog algebra, God's love beyond our understanding
Today I'd like all of you with dogs to take a few minutes and teach them algebra. A ridiculous request, isn't it?

But it's less ridiculous than you and I thinking we can fully understand the infinite goodness and love of God.

I've been meditating on Psalm 71 this week, and verse 15 says: "My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long, though I know not its measure" (NIV).

It reminds me of another passage--Ephesians 3:19 where Paul prays that the Ephesians will come to know God's love but admits God's love "can never be fully known." (GNT). 

I doubt that a dog can learn higher math, but I'm completely sure we will never fully understand God's wonderful love. It's that big. 

We use the word "awesome" too easily, but in this case, it fits.

  2. God is so good and I am realizing it more and more but not comprehending it!! The dog is so cute and makes the analogy stick.

  4. I love your analogy and I doubt that I can learn higher math either, lol! ;)

    Our capacity for love is so small compared to God's. But I'm glad because that means that I can't outlove God!


    Thanks so much for linking up to "Making Your Home Sing Monday!" today!

  5. If you don't mind my asking, how did you add all those buttons in your sidebar like that and make them smaller. Was it hard? Have you done a tutorial on it? I just think it's nicer looking than all the buttons I have at the bottom of my post, lol!

    1. They are done with the Inlinkz tool. It costs about $12 a year to have up to 25 collections. I also use it for my subject archives pages. I actually have a tutorial here: http://biblelovenotes.blogspot.com/2012/07/fun-tool.html

      email me gail. purath @ yahoo. com
      If you have any more questions. I also was having trouble knowing how to handle the blog hop buttons, but I wanted them visible so others could visit the hops I linked up to. There are a few hop hosts that require they be in the post itself, and I often don't participate in those hops for lack of time. But I think having them on my sidebar is a good advertisement for the site, actually better than having them in the post itself.
      Hope this helps.

    1. I think you're talking about the audio tool?
      If so, some of my readers have trouble if they are using "Internet Explorer" as their browser, so you might try another browser.
      But I'm not sure why you are hearing music. Could you possibly have another program running or be open to another blog that has music?
      Hope this helps,
      Gail
