English 6 Lesson 115

The Greeks had life lessons in their stories. They believed in several different Gods and magic. One life lesson is from the story The Golden Touch, with King Midas. The life lesson there is that money isn’t everything, when King Midas acquired The Golden Touch everything he touched turned to gold. He was a greedy man. But then when he discovers that he can’t eat or drink because the minute he touches the food or drink  it turns to gold, when he goes to hug his daughter, she turns to gold also. That’s when he realizes that there are more important things in life besides money. Like family, family is really important. 

There are tons of Gods that the Greeks believed in, if I were to name them all I think it would take several days for me to look them up and write them down. So I’ll just name a few. There’s The Big Three, Zeus God of the sky. Then Zeus’s brother Poseidon God of the sea. Then Hades, God of the underworld. I’ll name just a few more.  Artemis, virgin goddess of the hunt,  animals, the Moon, and archery just like her twin brother Apollo, God of music, arts, knowledge, healing, prophecy, and poetry. Athena (I”m not gonna lie I think she’s really cool) Goddess of wisdom, warfare, and battle strategy.
