Multiple “Signs” of Intelligence in the Bible

Set B- Hannah

Exodus 4:10-17

What is Aaron’s role?

Aarons role was to go to Moses and to speak to him with Gods words. God sent Aaron to do this because he was upset with Moses and wanted Moses to learn to speak like him. God was upset with Moses because he was talking about the deaf, the people that could hear, the blind, and the people that could see negatively. God wanted Aaron to teach Moses to be interpersonal.

Acts 8:26-38

Who are the two people in this story?

Phillip and an eunuch.

Why does one of them choose to be baptized?

Phillip decides to be baptised because he believed with all his heart that Jesus Christ is the son of God. Phillip is interpersonal and knows what is best for him and he knew that being baptised would bring him closer to God.

Commandments of the Church

The current five commandments of the Church are,

1. You shall attend Mass on Sundays and on holy days of obligation.

2. You shall confess your sins at least once a year.

3. You shall receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least once during the Easter season.

4. You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church.

5. You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church.

These five commandments were put in place so people would recognize the authority of the Church. The Church wants people to not forget the basic things they need to do in order to be with God, so they made commandments to remind them, and to keep them doing what they’re doing to become closer to God. https://dol.ca/holy-day, this link goes to the ‘Diocese of London’ website. There it states that the Holy Days of obligation to be observed in Canada are: all Sundays of the year, Christmas Day and the Feast of Mary, Mother of God. The two holy days of obligation that do not always fall on Sundays are, Christmas and Solemnity of Mary, mother of God.

Motivations

My top motivation factor is independence. I like to be alone and to be able to do my own thing, and do not like having to follow a strict set of rules. I would rather have freedom to do things how I think they should be done. Being self-employed or having your own business would be a great occupation for independent people. Another way I think of independence is being yourself. Don’t be a follower. Do whatever you want to without worrying about what others think. My second motivation factor is achievement. I take pride in what I have achieved and try to achieve as much as possible. Some people try to accomplish things for recognition, such as becoming a professional athlete. Others accomplish things for themselves or others. An example of this is completing your daily to do list, or helping people in need.

Knowledge

My favorite class at school is gym. Based on the results from my ‘Myblueprint’ survey, my top subject area is 83% physical education. My second highest result was 56% science. Many occupations that people with these results have are physiotherapists, chiropractors, dietician, or nurses. Two occupations that really caught my attention were personal trainers or professional athletes. Since I was 6 it has been my dream and goal to be a professional lacrosse player. I have always enjoyed being active and don’t enjoy sitting in desks doing work. But if being a lacrosse player doesn’t work out, my results say occupations such as vets are common among people with similar results.

Interests

According to the results from my ‘myBlueprint’ survey, my interest type is the maker. Most people with this interest type are creative and enjoy doing hands-on work. I would say I am definitely this kind of person because I highly dislike sitting at desks doing work on papers and would rather be outside working hands-on, on projects that don’t have many rules. I also like to be active so sitting in an office all day would not work for me. The feeling of having to do the same thing repeatedly everyday would drive me insane. Another thing that I do not enjoy is following a strict set of rules. I understand that rules are needed for society to function, but I like being able to have flexibility to do my own thing.
