Bringing People Into The Caring Community Of Christ
August 29, 2016 - "Character" Edition
Good afternoon! I read a quote on Facebook yesterday that I really liked: "Character isn't who you are when life goes your way. Character is who you really are when the bottom falls out." (LeCrae Moore)
How true is that?! It's easy to be a Christian / nice guy when things are going well ... but how about when we have a bad day, when a relationship or dream crumbles, or when someone criticizes us or ticks us off? The Bible doesn't say, "Be kind and compassionate to one another, unless you are in a bad mood" (Ephesians 4:32). Nor does it say, "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, unless there is a horrible driver in front of you" (Ephesians 4:2). It doesn't even say, "Offer hospitality to one another, unless your house is messy or you have PMS" (I Peter 4:9).
We all go through hard times, disappointments, and frustrations ... but guess what ... these things can help develop godly character. "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." (James 1:2-4)
I'm afraid I'm not there yet, as far as rejoicing when I run into problems and trials ... but I hope God is developing strength of character in me as I face them.
