Champions keep playing until they get it right. (Billie Jean King, retired tennis professional)

What makes a champion? Well, a certain skill is essential, whether it’s in sports, drama, or art. Champions will tell you, no doubt, that it takes an enormous amount of practice, too. Did you know that the familiar adage, “Practice makes perfect,” is not really true? Actually, regular practice only makes your efforts permanent. Be sure you’re practicing correctly—that’s critical.

Give me understanding and I will obey your instructions; I will put them into practice with all my heart (Psalm 119:34).
