How Character Is Built

We also rejoice in our afflictions, because we know

that affliction produces endurance, endurance produces

proven character, and proven character produces hope.

Romans 5:3-4

Beth Moore correctly observed, “Those who walk in truth walk in liberty.” Godly men and women agree. As believers in Christ, we must seek to live each day with discipline, honesty, and faith. When we do, at least two thing happen: integrity becomes a habit, and God blesses us because of our obedience to Him. Living a life of integrity isn’t always the easiest way, but it is always the right way… and God clearly intends that it should be our way, too.

Character isn’t built overnight; it is built slowly over a lifetime. It is the sum of every sensible choice, every honorable decision, and every honest word. It is forged on the anvil of sincerity and polished by the virtue of fairness. Character is a precious thing – preserve yours at all costs.


Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the

ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the

seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the

Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He

shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that

brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not

wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.

Psalm 1:1-3 NKJV

*From the book 365 Daily Devotions From Psalms for Women
