 What Is Character?

  • Character is the inward motivation to do what is right according to the highest standards of behavior in every situation.

  • Character consists of the stable and distinctive qualities built into an individual’s life that determine his or her responses, regardless of the circumstances.

  • Character is the wise response to the pressure of a difficult situation and what we do when we think that no one is watching. It is the predictor of good behavior.                     definition taken from




Some things you cannot change, but should understand how they impact your character, & what you can do about them....


8 April 2015                                   The 10 Unchangeables   &  Explaining the 10 Unchangeables takeaway paper     Deacon/Lay Leader Joshua Justice 

God has designed you as a unique individual and has planned a work for you only you can do.  He has given you a particular birthplace and time in history, unique DNA, a definite place in the sibling line, and your gender, your family, your ethnicity, your time of death, and your circumstances.  Although you may have a genetic condition you cannot change, He already planned for that.  You might not care for your eye color, but He planned for that. On all 10 fronts, He has planned for that... He wants to understand we are unique and precious to Him.  It is fine to get braces or to work to repair a medical condition, but when you rail against your birth order, your time in history or get angry at God because of the parents you have, you are stepping on dangerous ground... He has a reason for all of those things.  When we come to realize He created us as beautiful and unique in His plan, we can choose to rise to the top and become our best selves.  We learn to enjoy His plan for us; we get the peace that passes understanding and become, settled, joyful, productive, and a blessing to both God and man.... The 10 Unchangeables...
