Have you ever had firewood delivered to your house and wondered if you got what you paid for? Firewood is measured in a funny way, called cords. The dictionary says that a cord is 4x4x8. This is 128 cubic feet. When people deliver firewood they say it is a cord, when in reality it is a face cord. A face cord is a stack of wood 4' high and 8 foot long one row deep maybe 16” or 18” wide. A face cord 4' x8' x 16” is 42.67 cubic feet. This is only 1/3 of a regular cord.
Most people do not set out to cheat you. The problem is that there is confusion on the meaning of the different terms. Another problem with the volume of wood is the way it is stacked. Big chunks stacked on top of each other have a lot of space between the logs. The best way to get more is to put small sticks in-between the logs.
Just as there is confusion about firewood volume so Christians don't realize how much Christ has for us. The Bible is full of promises of how much we have in Christ. “And in Him you have been make complete, . . . “Colosssians 2:10
