Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Most of us “want it…all of us need it.” To those building their career; those wishing to excel in business; and especially in family life, social, and spiritual avenues….should process these qualities of behavior. Failing to process them would doom one to early failure… in any of their pursuits.

It is the Lord’s purpose to develop our moral character. “The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tests the heart” (Proverbs 17:3). Godly character is the result of the Holy Spirit’s work of sanctification. Character in the believer is a consistent manifestation of Jesus in his life. It is the purity of heart that God gives becoming purity in action. God sometimes uses trials to strengthen character: “we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope” (Romans 5:3-4). The Lord is pleased when His children grow in character. “You test the heart and are pleased with integrity” (1 Chronicles 29:17; see also Psalm 15:1-2). What’s the status of your Character?   ….Blessings…cjlb….5/12/15
