Do Not Quit, Keep Playing…………

concert

A beautiful story that I read, is so perfect with the Title: ‘Do not Quit, Keep Playing’ and once we surrender ourselves in the Master’s Hand at every moment, our life’s work truly can be beautiful and a masterpiece. You can hear the voice of the Master, whispering in your ear, ‘Don’t quit, keep playing’. The story goes like this: 

‘Wishing to encourage her young son’s progress on the piano, a mother took her small boy to a Paderewski concert. After they were comfortably seated in the front row, the mother spotted a friend in the audience. She told her son, ‘Sit here only, do not go anywhere. I will just say hello to my friend and come back.’ She walked down the aisle to greet her friend.  Seizing the opportunity to explore the wonders of the concert hall, the little boy got up from his seat and eventually explored his way through a door marked ‘No Admittance.’

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She frantically looked here and there but did not find her son.  Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage.  To her utter shock, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.’ At that moment the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano and whispered in the boy’s ear, ‘Don’t quit, keep playing’.

Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part.  Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running obligation.  Together, the old master and the young novice transformed a frightening situation into a wonderfully creative experience.  The audience was mesmerized.

That is the way it is with the Master. What we can accomplish on our own is hardly noteworthy.  We can try our level best, but the results are not exactly a graceful flowing music.   Next time you set out to accomplish great feats, listen carefully.  You can hear the Master encouraging you to carry on and not give up at any stage in your life. He is there guiding you, like your father and feel His loving arms around you.  Know that his strong hands are playing the concerto of your life.  Remember, God does not call the equipped, He equips the called.’

    Is that the moral of the wonderful story Kamal
