3 JOHN 12:

When others speak well of you, you have acceptance; but when the truth speaks well of you, you have character. Demetrius had it - do you? A lot has been written and said about character. Study the following words carefully then ask yourself, 'Do I have character?'

Character is simply confidence dressed in humility.

It keeps its word, its temper and its friends. It has a steady eye, a steady nerve, a steady tongue, and steady habits.

It is silent when it has nothing to say, thoughtful and compassionate when it judges, and is always first to make amends when it is wrong.

Character does not run scared.

It is surefooted, committed, and handles whatever comes along.

Character has a sense of honour.

It knows that a good laugh is often the best lubricant for oiling the machinery of human relations. Character never makes excuses.

It takes its bumps, learns from its mistakes and becomes wiser.

Character knows that courtesy and good manners are nothing more than a series of small sacrifices. It bespeaks an aristocracy that is not dependent on ancestors or money.

A Lord can be totally without it while the lowest of the low may ooze it out of every pore.

Character can talk with crowds and keep your virtue.

Character walks with Kings and does not loose the common touch.

Everyone is comfortable with a person who has character because they are comfortable with themselves!

So, how do you measure up? Still need work? Be encouraged we have the Lord on our side, He will see us through
