Bear in a cave

Watched a movie last night about James Braddock who won the boxing heavy weight championship of the world in 1935 against Max Baer. He was a 10 to 1 underdog and was called the Cinderella man man because of his rise from a dock worker during the depression to the world champion. James was motivated out of his poverty and the need to feed his kids, but in the process he became a very strong man in his will to win. The movie illustrated well my favorite saying, “God created a man to find a cave with a bear in it, drive out the bear, and live in the cave”. Most of us fuss a lot today when life is hard, but God made life hard for a reason, so that we would become strong and become like Jesus in character.
