Determination

Ignacy Jan Paderewski

Ignacy Jan Paderewski was asked by a fellow pianist if he could be ready to play a recital on short notice. The famous musician replied: “I am always ready. I have practiced eight hours daily for forty years.”

The other pianist said, “I wish I had been born with such determination.”

Paderewski replied, “We are all born with it. I just used mine.”

“To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”—Colossians 1:29
