“…In quietness and confidence is your strength…”
-Isaiah 30:15c, NLT
we’ve learned something in the last, what, four years since the great
collapse in our economy, it is that character is the most important
thing in any organization, in any movement. We’ve discovered that what
we need in our world are people of character – men and women who
primarily care not about what people think, not about their own
reputations, but about character – doing what is right just for the sake
of doing it.
We’ve come to care more about who we really are, and whom that other person is deep down inside. That’s what matters.
is what gives strength and power to any movement of God. However, it’s
not just in the leader that needs good character, but also in all the
people involved in any organization. We must all be people of true
character, people who really love doing good. Just love it.
truly love people and care deeply about what God thinks about us, and
care less about what anybody else thinks. Together, let’s depend on
God’s strength and truth in us, as believers, to be people of good
character helping others selflessly in times such as these.
Spirit of God, in quietness and confidence is my strength for living
today. Help me to take in this truth, and then help others, as is your
will for me, in times such as these and for the rest of my life on
Reflection: How has character
helped you during hard times? How has a lack of character in missteps or
misdeeds hurt you or others? What are you doing, today, in God’s
strength to help others in need?.
