“That’s the dumbest thing I think I’ve ever heard,” said the child.
“Let me ask you this,” continued the traveler, “Can a circle be a straight line?”
“Of course not,” replied the child.
“Really? If you could draw a circle of infinite size what would your line look like?”
The child thought about it for sometime and then came to the startling conclusion: “The line of an infinite circle would be indistinguishable from a straight line!”
The traveler smiled. “Precisely! Similarly, I can’t know — or even get my mind around God’s infinite powers — but I do see His straight lines everywhere I look.”
