“History is philosophy teaching by examples.”
That quote is attributed to the great Athenian general and historian, Thucydides. We all know the old saying, “those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.” While true, the quote from Thucydides gives that saying true gravity. History not only teaches us about the past, it teaches us about ourselves. It teaches us the principle that everything throughout history has a grand purpose and plan laid out by our Creator.
So this bears the question, do you find yourself in a history teaching rut? Do you find yourself repeating endless lessons without flavor and life? Do you spend too many days assigning text without context or meaning?
Don’t feel ashamed, we’ve all been there.
I’ve got good news, you can bring history to life immediately. Allow me to share just a few ideas and a little background on myself.
