Develop Godly Character
Character can be defined as a collection of personality traits within our behaviour. It is shown in our attitude, words and actions when responding to the situations and circumstances of life and it shapes how we treat one another. Success or failure in any situation depends, more than anything else on how we respond to events and circumstances. Therefore it is our character that determines our success
Christian character is aligning our lives so that our behaviour is Christ-like. It is the fruit that is produced when we abide in Christ. Paul speaks about this fruit of the spirit in Galatians.” But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and self-control.”
Each of us should recognize the vital importance of good character to the success of our lives, communities, country and the world and undertake to improve our character and seek to influence others by helping them to develop better character.
“We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” – Martin Luther King Jr
