Kindness and Sportsmanship
Romans 12:20-21 Therefore If your enemy is hungry, feed him, If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head;
21; Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
To me Kindness and Sportsmanship goes a long way in life and in sports. I had a student that showed good Sportsmanship after he won the wrestling match then helped the other opponent up. In front of everyone the Coach jumped on him yelling saying that he is your enemy you don’t ever help him up, you win then walk away. Well to me he is not a Coach this is a sport, and to me sports show how we should be on the outside world. When we get into a ring to fight, yes he is my enemy but then with the Lord help win or loose the fight and now the Lord want me to show Kindness to my enemy and we help them up and talk to them after the match. Taekwondo is very big on this and why I love the Martial Arts so much when it is taught correctly. This goes right alone with my last message.
