Character means, “the mental and moral qualities of a person” – basically your character is who you are/what you do when nobody’s looking.
How would you describe your character? Are you the same in public and in private? Study Proverbs 11:3 (http://bit.ly/2OiUIy9)
Jesus calls us to a life of integrity and honesty – these qualities are vital to building good character. This includes being honest with yourself. I have seen people shattered by others’ dishonesty, which included not facing up to the truth about themselves.
Your values and your beliefs affect your speech and behaviour. Watch yourself and others carefully. Your character and your reputation depend on it!
