Episode Summary

Sally is trying to play the piano so that people would want to listen. Davey has taken up bowling. Both are rotten at their new interests, so they pray that they would become champions overnight. Unfortunately, Davey still bowls bad and Sally plays bad. Davey and Sally both quit. Davey and Sally both tell their dad that prayer hasn't helped and that they quit their new interests. Davey's dad provides wisdom by saying "Champions aren't made in a week Davey. It wouldn't mean anything if just suddenly like magic, you were both the best." Davey's mom replies "Something God did, not something you did." Davey's dad adds "He expects you to do your part." After John talks to the kids about the hard work it took them to be champion skaters, they realize that working at it will go a long way and that when you fail at something, you should practice and try again. They also learn that when they pray, they should ask God to help them stick with it and not ask him to supernaturally just give them the talent without actually working for it.moreless
