Sermon Illustrations: Determination (See Also Perseverance)

Damon Runyon U.S. journalist and short story writer best known for his book Guys and Dolls, got his first newspaper job in Denver. He sat in the outer office patiently waiting while an office boy carried his request to be seen by the busy editor. In about ten minutes the boy returned and said, "He wants you to send in a card." Runyon had no card, but being resourceful, he reached into his pocket and pulled out a deck of cards. From the pack, he carefully extracted an ace and said, "Give him this." He got in and got the job.
