Did you know that one company, Datang Hosiery Group, in China, makes a third of all the socks sold in the world? (Peter Hessler, Country Driving)
Let’s see…I own about 7 pairs of socks plus I have at least 3 single socks hanging around in the laundry room.
There are almost 7 billion people in the world. That could add up to 49 billion pairs of socks and 21 billion single socks.
So, of this total, Datang Hosiery produced over 16 billion pairs of socks and 7 billion single socks (although I think the singles use to have a mate).
It is silly to underestimate the power of one.
“For no one has ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deeds that Moses did in the sight of all Israel. (Duet. 34:12, NIV)
“And this was [John the Baptist’s] message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.” (Mark 1:7, NIV)
From 21st Century Science and Health, “Having one God, one Mind, unfolds the power that heals the sick.
“A limited mind manifests all sorts of anomalies, and causes the mind-in-matter theory to be seen as conflictive. No one has found temporal mind, life, or love sufficient to satisfy the demands of human lack and anguish. Our desires and aspirations ache to be fulfilled and a reward is felt when we stop limiting infinite Mind to finite resources. Infinite Mind can’t lose its character as inexhaustible Love, eternal Life, omnipotent Truth.”
