In Sunday school, our teacher shared that he had read there are three things that can tell you a lot about a person’s character…
1. What makes a person laugh?
2. What makes a person angry?
3. What makes a person cry?
Those are questions that have me thinking about myself. What about you?
One of my catch phrases that I am known for telling my family when having to do something they don’t like is this…it builds character.
In Romans 5:3-4, it says…we glory in our sufferings because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance character, and character, hope.
Can we truly experience hope without having experienced suffering?
Think back on some of your most challenging times. These may just very well have also been some of your greatest moments of Hope and Blessings.
Hope even in the smallest dose is still hope.
The smallest step is still a step.
Character is built of the stuff in us that refuses to give up and keeps pushing forward.
