How close is school to education? Does school truly provide us with the necessary tools and knowledge to be able to call ourselves educated or does it make us just potentially knowledgeable? Once we have finished school, how prepared are we to face any problem and difficulty that life will bring our way? These types of questions are constantly asked around the globe, as people constantly realize how many different things are useful in life and how few are covered in each country’s educational system.
Then, such questions arise once again when people become parents who want their children to have all the tools they need to develop their skills and to succeed in life, so that they (i.e. the parents) can worry less about them. Well, as for me, apart from a university graduate and a mother, I am also Greek, so you know that if I try to answer any of the important questions in life, I am going to consult my ancestors who liked to put everything to the test and reach to conclusions in a very, among other things, unapologetic way. I mean, “say it like you mean it” would be an understatement for them!
When it comes to education, the renowned ancient Greek philosopher Socrates kind of dismisses the concept of knowledge to state that it is all a matter of behavior. So, which people are educated, in essence, per Socrates? “Those who control unpleasant situations, instead of being controlled by them;
Those who treat all events with bravery and good old common sense;
Those who are honest in all their dealings;
Those who face unpleasant situations and are calm even when mistreated by people who dislike them;
Those who can control their pleasures;
Those who were not defeated by their misfortunes and failures; and
Those who do not become arrogant and corrupt by their success and glory.”

Hi guys, so I’ve decided to open this Instagram business account for all you hot fit women out there😍
Its seems weird to me that all these fitness accounts have a lot of good and healthy content, but i can barely find any women on these pages.
My female friends always tell me how they don’t feel motivated working out because thats not girly and only for men.
So i came here to show these women that working out can be sexy and strengthening for females too.
Hope this will inspire you 👱🏼♀️💪🏾
Tag a friend who needs some motivation whether they’re male or female🏋🏼♀️
Continuing on YHWH. ⠀⠀
In the OT a word that is used for God in Hebrew is “Elohim,” which really is plural: gods. There were different gods or Lords responsible for different nations, and for the nation of Israel the God YHWH was assigned (Deuteronomy 32:8-9). This speaks of his essence - as being one of the gods, he becomes more local and limited. Only if there was one God, he would be omnipresent, and almighty as the universal ruler, but that can’t be true all at the same time for many gods. ⠀⠀
It does make sense though, why YHWH often showed fear and jealousy of other gods and often competed with them in his might. If he was the only one there, it would be a little hard to explain why he is the God of only one nation (like what happens to the rest?) and what other gods he keeps on talking about and battling with. ⠀⠀
Another aspect is that it seems like he dwelled in a particular place, on a mountain instead of the heavens or in the hearts of the people. He was kind of like Zeus who lived on the mountain Olympus. The mountain of Sinai was sacred, that even animals could not touch it or they would die. To speak with him (Moses) or offer him sacrifices (Abraham) went to a specific place to meet the God, instead of just gazing at the sky. ⠀⠀
So by adding this aspect to my previous post on his character, I am trying to portray that we might’ve imagined him larger and more perfect than he really is. If he is one of the rulers, and sharing in some of the character traits of mortals (particularly the Jews, who he ruled over, who were stubborn, violent, often immoral and brutal) it makes sense that he presented himself in such a way. ⠀⠀
He is one of the deities, he is powerful and he is divine, and he has a relationship with humans. But he is not all there is, so there is no need to idealize. The Absolute above, that encompasses it all and really dwells in all, would not be as easy to reach and understand, and put a label on its character or behavior. So that’s why we have the lower gods, who are more like us and let us communicate and “understand.” 🙂 ⠀⠀
