Visiting today www.blogosfera.md I was motivated to read an article on the The Blog of a good man, that refers to martial arts. The story seemed interesting to me and because it is a short one, I would like to totally reproduce it here:
A successful sports fighter from Europe went, once, to Tibet, to one of the best martial arts masters. Once he arrived there, the athlete told that man:
– I have black belt in karate and in two other martial arts, I am a world champion in wrestling. What new can I learn from you?
The old master thought a bit and said:
– Imagine that late at night you are walking on an unenlightened and dirty street, where the most likely, there are groups of armed robbers and bandits. Well, here I will teach you to never go on such streets.
In the word of God it says:
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish. (Psalm 1:1-6)(NASB)
