Lessons From Mr. Miyagi (2:216)

Believers: The Ultimate Victors
[2:216] Fighting may be imposed on you, even though you dislike it. But you may dislike something which is good for you, and you may like something which is bad for you. GOD knows while you do not know.

Karate Kid – Wax On, Wax Off

In this example Daniel-san asked Mr. Miyagi to teach him karate, but all he has him doing is chores (i.e. wax on, wax off, paint the fence, wash the floor etc.). Little to Daniel-san’s acknowledgement Mr. Miyagi was training him in the motions of karate. God teaches us every day in our daily interactions so we can become better people, but most the time we are apprehensive to take heed. For instance, when we are stuck in traffic God is teaching us patience. When we don’t get that “A” on the test God may be teaching us humility.
