Character Is Valuable… “A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.” Proverbs 31:10
Because character is like precious jewels, wisdom keeps it secure in the lock-box of your life. Assign faith and obedience as two sentinels poised at the entrance of your heart and mind. These loyal friends keep Satan from snatching away even a portion of your hard earned character. Indeed your investment in integrity is worth aggressive protection.
In your business, home or ministry it is of extreme worth to define the values that hold accountable everyone one involved. Values are to a company what character is to an individual. What is the character you expect in the workplace and at home? Respect, excellence, thoroughness, trustworthiness, balance and faith-based may all be behaviors that reflect the character of your life at work, home and church. Seriously consider collaboration with all invested parties and define the desired character of the enterprise.
The most important value of character is it solicits the blessing of your Savior Jesus Christ. He creates character and then He blesses His creation. Like with Joseph, the Lord is with you as you stand on your uncompromising character. “When his master saw that the LORD was with him and that the LORD gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned” (Genesis 39:3-4). What value does the Lord place on my character? How can I wisely protect this gift from God?
What did I learn from the Lord in today’s Bible reading?
How will I respond?
