ORANGE “BELT (WANG GUK 2: “KINGDOM”)
Meaning: The mustard seed of faith is beginning to germinate.
Interpretation: “For we walk by faith, not by sight .”
– 2 Cor 5:7 (NAS)
Now that your seed has been planted, it is beginning to grow. There are changes already taking place – in your body strength, flexibility, muscle tone and, most of all, your respect for Taekwondo.
You might say, “Master Lovett, I really don’t see any changes in myself.”
As your instructor, I will say to you, “I do.”.
The simple things in every class truly show me your improvements, from the way you now know how to line up by rank, and by the way you bow in and out of each class, to the way you are saying, “Yes Sir!”, or, “Yes Ma’am!” more than you probably ever have in your life.
Your uniform and belt are tied properly. You understand stances and rotation and the direction of the techniques. I pray that you have heard me say some things that you have never heard, but which have opened your eyes at least a little bit to the Word of God.
Maybe you are praying more. Maybe you are questioning the purpose in your life. You see, your seed is growing! Hang in there, and keep working hard! Your seed is getting ready to sprout!
