Topic: The Power of Character
SCRIPTURE: There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. Job 1:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Uprightness brings direction.
A good character is one of the key virtues of the life of a genuine Christian; it is a ladder to greater heights in life. Men of impact in the Bible were men of positive and qualitative character.
It is very important to know that character is not just powerful; character is power. The real power of a man is the power of his character and not financial, muscular or diabolical power.
The silence of character is louder than the utterance of compromise. This means that for people of character, their silence weighs heavier than the utterance of normal people. Job was undoubtedly a man of quality character. In his generation, he commanded both the audience and the attention of the people on the strength of character (Job 29:21-23).
There are people who others long to hear speak and there are those that people have no patience for. For example, nobody looks for career counsel from an armed robber or a harlot. This is because they lack the power of positive character.
One implication of good character is that it guarantees Divine guidance and direction. Uprightness brings direction (Psalm 112:4).
Beloved, righteousness brings brightness and unrighteousness invites darkness. So, uphold qualitative character in order to end as a light to your generation.
Remember this: Uprightness brings direction.
1. Ask God for the grace to live an upright life.
2. Prayerfully work on your character.
