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.
