“Indomitable spirit, SIR”!
The students enrolled at Master Evans Martial Arts must not only memorize these tenets, they must demonstrate that they are living them out in daily life.
The declaration is then followed by confession.
Master Evans asks, “Which of you were disrespectful to a parent, grandparent, or teacher today”?
The guilty raise their hands…because they know that the parent, grandparent, or teacher has already spoken to Master Evans.
Discipline is sure and swift… a minimum of 100 pushups or “burpies”.
Repeat offenders may find themselves against a wall in a squatting position with arms extended for the whole class.
Don’t try that at home…
We enrolled Trey there to learn that discipline.
He won that medal for beating someone up…in behavior, he’s still working on honorable mention.
Naturally, my mind turns to the church…
What if …at the beginning of the service this Sunday we all shout the “Nine Tenets” of Christian living?
This would be immediately followed by confession…because He already knows .
He does expect us to demonstrate these tenets in our daily lives…
He sent someone to take the all of our punishment, though.
Make your own application…
