Adding It Up

This was in my parish bulletin. Cleverly done. Make one think, does it not?


Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

Let's do the math!

Let A=1, B=2,...Z=26.

Then, based upon those numbers:

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

HARD WORK (8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11)=98%

ATTITUDE (1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5)=100%

Now, look how far this can take you:

LOVE OF GOD (12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4)=101%

Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that while KNOWLEDGE and HARD WORK will get you close and ATTITUDE will get you there, the LOVE OF GOD will put you over the top.
