I’m still trying to get over jet lag.  Hence this much more later post for today!

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading some few months ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of 1 Thessalonians 1:2.  Here is my translation:

“SENTENCE 2 Εὐχαριστοῦμεν τῷ θεῷ πάντοτε περὶ πάντων ὑμῶν
We give thanks to God always concerning all of you

ELABORATION μνείαν ποιούμενοι ἐπὶ τῶν προσευχῶν ἡμῶν
Making mention in our prayers

ELABORATION ἀδιαλείπτως”

Here are some observations:

When Education Lacks a Telos (Ecclesiastes 1:12-18)

What’s the point of education?

For many, the answer is purely materialistic: learn so you can have a good career; get a good career so you can make a lot of money; make a lot of money so you can buy and do a lot of “stuff.” Obviously, this perspective is fraught with danger.

But that’s not what the new testament teaches. What scripture teaches is not that you’re Master and He’s your slave; it’s that He’s Master and you’re His slave.

God directed the prophet, Samuel, to anoint Saul as king. Saul certainly had a regal appearance. Scripture says, “There was not a man among the people of Israel more handsome than he. From his shoulders upward he was taller than any of the people” (9:22). But while Saul’s outward appearance was impressive, his heart was not right with God. Below are some examples of Saul’s rebellious heart from the Book of 1 Samuel:
