I recently watched the movie, "The Karate Kid". You can always tell who has seen that one simply by throwing out the line - "paint the fence, paint the fence" - and see if they get it. That movie embodied the heart of a caring coach; do it right and do it again. I'll show you how, I'll do it with you, and I’ll watch you do it, you'll do it alone. The best coaches are always working themselves out of a job.

Practice doesn't make perfect; practice makes permanent. If you practice bad habits you will only acquire a greater proficiency at doing things badly. It doesn't matter how much you practice, until your fundamentals improve you never will.

Paint the fence. Paint the fence. Paint the fence. Just do it. Practice makes permanent.

In the Hebrew thought, a person cannot hear something without actively listening and considering it and then acting upon it. Basically, obedience is doing God's will.

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Matthew 7:21

Think on, now act on!

Finally … whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good standing, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me —put it into practice-- And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9
