God plus one is always a majority –

Wishing to encourage her young son’s progress at the piano, a mother bought tickets to an Ignace Paderewski performance. When the night arrived, the two found their seats near the front of the concert hall. The boy stared in wide-eyed amazement at the majestic grand piano on the stage. The mother began talking to a friend sitting near by and she failed to notice her son slip away. As the house lights dimmed and the spot light lit the piano, the woman gasped as she saw her son on the piano bench, innocently pecking out ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’.

Before the woman could retrieve her son, the famous concert pianist appeared on stage and quickly moved to the keyboard. “Don’t quit – keep playing” he whispered to the boy. Leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Then with his right arm, he reached around the other side, encircling the child, to add a running obbligato. together, the old master and the young novice mesmerized the crowd.

No matter how insignificant, or ‘amateur-ish’ you may feel today, the Master has these words for you, “Don’t quit – keep playing,” He will add whatever is needed to turn you efforts into a masterpiece.
