Building Character

My daughter posted this on her Facebook page yesterday. I told her i consider it successful parenting.

Truthfully, I do have some eccentric tendencies and love to have fun (although I’m told my idea of fun is different than others’).

Have you ever thought honestly about what builds character, though? And about what kind of character you want to build?

Romans 5 tells us that suffering build character through perseverance.

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Romans 5:3-5 | NIV

Are you suffering today? Physically? Mentally? Spiritually? (Silly question, for I dare say that each of us are to one degree or another). Remember, the degree to which you endure is the degree to which you build your character. Are you building a good one?

Stay strong, my friends. Endure the trials and build your character.

Be blessed,

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
