The “One” Configuration


I’ve been attending an Algebra 1a class with my students in the High School and I’m finally learning math! For example:


The number “1” has absolutely no impact in the world of division.

“1” cannot divide other numbers, and it cannot divide its own self.

So, in order for strength and wholeness to exist, “The One Configuration” comes into play; living as one with a spouse, or a family, a work force, community, the church, God, and even with one’s own self.

Even the ancient Samurai said, “Don’t have too many minds” (The Last Samurai, 2003) and the Bible tells the church, “Be of one mind, live in peace” (2 Corinthians 13:11).

Behaving like a number that can trigger division will reduce the strength in any organization.

Living as one with our significant group relationships, usually results in fabulous, all-encompassing rewards!

  1. Interesting thoughts! And then there’s the verse that says, “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

    • Yes! There’s also Jesus saying “A divided house will fall”, and I think Solomon says something about a rope not being strong unless it has two or more strands entwined, and there are a lot more!
