something that works

A few weeks ago I had my Greek mid-term & i was pretty wound up about it for a variety of reasons.  Bottom line, from my opinion, I needed to do well in it to pass the class.  However, if you would have asked me about it, I would have gone off on the class – grammar griping, content clarity, instrumental datives, absolute genitives, possessive pronouns, etc.  The more I griped, the worse it got. 

Intervene God (whew!) – in our Philippians study, the next verses we’re working on talk about doing everything without complaining or arguing – even taking a greek mid-term.  Furthermore, I thought about one of my friends in Ethiopia who would LOVE the chance to study greek.  Needless to say, God put me in His cross hairs & fired away.  I’m really glad because I shut my mouth, studied & smiled, generally. 

Result?

Check back tomorrow!!  GOTCHA!  😉

  1. Phil 2:14
    Do all things without grumbling or disputing;

    I’m curious, in reflection of your Greek studies so far, has any of the studies of the Greek/Hebrew translations changed your understanding of any verses? In other words, did studying Greek translations change what you thought some things in the Bible said?

  2. studying Greek has definately changed some of my thoughts w what the Bible says – some things not too major but others quite a bit. Its also enabled me to understand the Bible at a significantly deeper level!
