"Getting the Ratios Right"
Rich Karlgaard said, “Success is often a matter of getting the ratios right.” The creator of the universe certainly understood that. Edward Wright, the astrophysicist from UCLA said the Big Bang would have fizzled in the first second had the neutron-to-proton ratio been just a wee bit more or less than it was.
Ratios are important to each of us. Life is a matter of key ratios being exactly right. We live with a perfect balance of water, nutrients, gases, gravity and solar radiation to sustain the inhabitants of planet Earth. Those ratios must be precise. We are just the right distance from the sun so that we do not freeze or fry! Could it be that these ratios do not exist anywhere else in the universe?
Could it be that ratios are not only important for us economically but also physically? We need to check our ratios regarding work-to-play, prayer-to-pace, calories-to-exercise, strength-to-weight, and isolation-to-community.
Sabbath rest is not just Biblical. It is also logical.
