. . . but one thing I do . . . I press on . . .
(Philippians 3:13 NIV)
Paul was a one-thing person. That is, he had one aspiration toward which he moved with total concentration. One-thing people such as Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan are defined by the priority that gives power and purpose to their lives, which works itself out in a process. Moreover, “pressing on” was the theme of Paul’s life. Press on, because nothing in the world can take the place of persistence: 1) Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful individuals with talent. 2) Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. 3) Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
