The Bible, kung fu manual

Here is a small example of how an in depth study of the Bible can help us to understand kung fu better.

James 3:3 tells us,

When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal.

this little verse tells us several things. The first thing it tells us is the obvious thing: control the head, control the whole body. We find this to be true in kung fu, just as it tells us in Scripture.

The second thing it tells us isn't quite so obvious, but just as true: you control a powerful beast by taking control of its weekest link. Just like you control the horse by controling the mouth, you control a whole person by controling just their finger.

cool, isn't it, how God weaves this very universal truth into His Word. Makes it all come alive to me, what about you?
