When wealth is lost, nothing is lost. When health is lost, something is lost. When character is lost, all is lost

The default me

  |  0 Comments

Character is a word that describes the default me. The person I am over the long haul of life. The person who emerges in the most difficult, challenging moments. Character identifies the attitudes, convictions and resulting behaviours that distinguish my life.

Let’s put it another way: character is what people can expect of me in most situations.

Character and power

  |  0 Comments

Some Christians consider it more noble to choose character over spiritual power. But we must not separate the two. In fact, it is unjustifiable and illegitimate to do so. Only when taken together do character and power allow for the key response, which is obedience.

The book also reveals examples

The book also reveals examples of commendable character…
a. Nobility of character in Ruth, who proved to be better to Naomi than seven sons!
b. Nobility of character in Boaz, as an employer, and believer in God’s promises and commands Remember that such character was manifested during a dark period in Israel’s history… “In those days [there was] no king in Israel; everyone did [what was] right in his own eyes.” (Judg 21:23)
