A young man once studied violin under a world-renowned violinist and master teacher. He worked hard for
several years at perfecting his talent, and the day finally came when he was called upon to give his first
major public recital in the large city where both he and his teacher lived. Following each selection, which
he performed with great skill and passion, the performer seemed uneasy about the great applause he
received. Even though he knew that those in the audience were musically astute and not likely to give
such applause to a less than superior performance, the young man acted almost as if he couldn't hear the
appreciation that was being showered upon him.

At the close of the last number, the applause was thunderous and numerous 'Bravos' were shouted. But the
talented young violinist had his eyes glued on one spot only. Finally, when an elderly man in the first
row of the balcony smiled and nodded to him in approval, the young man relaxed and beamed with both
joy and pleasure. His teacher had praised his work!
The applause of thousands meant nothing until he had first won the approval of the master.

I don't know the secret to success, but the key to failure is to try to please everyone.

Who are you trying to please today? You will never be able to please everyone, but you can please the One
who matters most - your Father God. Keep your eyes on Him, and you can't fail.
