Challenged Accepted

A drabble

‘A drabble is a short work of fiction of precisely one hundred words. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space.’->wiki

Challenge Accepted

2024, Henery X ©

A karate student called out his teacher in front of the rest of the students. He had what his teacher had taught him, plus some techniques he taught himself. The teacher quickly accepted the challenge. The student suffered a heavy defeat.

“Teacher, you have some new moves, I see.”

“No. I have the moves I’ve always had. I taught you only what I wanted you to know, not everything I know. I foresaw this day coming.”

The student bowed to his teacher and didn’t re-raise his head. He went and sat amid the other students, who all laughed at him.

A student doesn’t become an effective teacher because of the information they receive, but because of their proper understanding of the information they received.-Henery X

The student learned a valuable lesson, which was: “Never assume you know it all.” There will always be someone who knows more than we do. Though we may be effective teachers, being diligent students should always overshadow this fact. Live to Learn, so you may Learn to Live. 

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.
