I have witnessed a tendency in the Body of Christ to do things with sloppiness. The philosophy behind such spirit is that the Lord knows our hearts, therefore, He accepts everything we do for HIM, and we are taught that quality is not really important.

            From music, to dancing and sports, no doubt we can say, that the world is ahead of us in terms of quality and excellence. However, the Bible gives us countless examples that clearly demonstrate that we ought to be the best of the best in everything we do.

            From Noah, who build the Ark; to Abraham, whom the Bible describes as the father our faith to Joseph who became the second most powerful man in the most powerful nation of those days to Moses who followed in detail all the instructions God gave him in the building of the Tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant. What can we say about David? Can we say that his son Solomon lacked excellence? We go all the way to the excellence of Daniel and, this is just to mention a few.

            The Bible tells us in Psalm 33:3 “Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.” (KJV) So why are we allowing people that can’t sign do so in the church. This takes us to the following point, why do we lower the standards in Christian Martial Arts? The Bible tells us in 2 Samuel 2:35, “He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.” (NASB) This is, without a doubt, the description of a powerful martial artist. As a Christian Martial Arts Instructor we must be ready for battle, physically and emotionally. We most do things with excellence and passion.

“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.” Ecclesiastes 9:10 (KJV)
