Commitment

In Elysa Gardner's USA Today tribute to Richard Rogers, she tells a story that gives us a clue to his extraordinary success in musical theater. She relates comments made by Rogers' eldest daughter Mary. "He wouldn't read The New Yorker, unless he thought it would make a good musical. That's the mark of genius I think — being utterly consumed, almost to the exclusion of everything else."

Do we have that kind of passion for the great work God has called us to?
