C is for Character

Side note: Everyone keep my wife in your prayers. She has an 11 x 11 mm kidney stone. Ouch.

Character. Martin Luther King Jr once said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

Content of character. What kind of character are you? 1st John 4:20 says, "If someone says, 'I love God,' and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?"

Our character is really driven by what we put our faith in. Do we believe in a God who loves us so much that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but will have eternal life? Or have we put our faith in a petty god who holds grudges and only accepts you if you follow what some people think he wants? Mine faith is in a God who loves us so much that he separates me from my sin as far as the east is from the west. A God who throws my sins into the sea of forgetfulness. I love Him because He loved me first.

This is the type of character I want to be. This is the character that looks beyond skin color and point of view and just loves those around.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.
Cheesecake. Pink Floyd. Most importantly Jesus.
