Character is the moral and mental qualities of someone, including their personality, disposition, temperament and makeup of who they are. Character is who we are in public and in private. Events in our lives shape our character. James says, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”┬áLet’s pray together for the character of our loved ones to be shaped into the image of God through whatever life throws their way.
