Opera star Mary Garden, considered one of the greats of her profession, said there was one thing she always told herself before going on stage: “There’s one person in that vast audience who has made a sacrifice to come and hear me, and for that person I’m going to give my very best.”
There is a biblical principle that states that all of us—even those who are not famous opera stars—should strive for excellence in whatever it is that we try to do.
Eccl.9:10a says, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…”. Col.3:23-24 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
Always remember that the Lord is in the audience, and the Lord deserves your very best.
