Opportunities to Grow in Character

Proverbs 3:3 (TPT) Hold on to loyal love and don’t let go, and be faithful to all that you’ve been taught. Let your life be shaped by integrity, with truth written upon your heart.

Beloved, be steadfast in integrity. Be loyal in your love. Be faithful with all you’ve learned, and be one who leads by example. You have been equipped for that which lies ahead. 

Give weight to that which has been learned, for every experience of life gives opportunity to grow in character. Do so wisely. Stay focused on Me. Mirror your behavior to Mine. Be full of grace and rich in mercy, slow to anger and not easily offended, and love deeply and without judgment. Trust Me to move in others’ lives even as I move in yours. 

Proverbs 3:3-4 (VOICE) Stay focused; do not lose sight of mercy and truth; engrave them on a pendant, and hang it around your neck; meditate on them so they are written upon your heart. In this way, you will win the favor of God and others, and they will think well of you.

  1. Beautiful words and a timely reminder. Just yesterday I was practicing yoga and the teacher shared this direction, “Go to your edge, and soften.” Isn’t that what is being asked of us? The health of our bodies and our minds depends on this softening. We remind our bodies to be less ridged and gently embrace flexibility. We observe our thoughts and choose to be curious and kind rather than resistant and judgemental. See the flow. Join the dance. Be at ease. XO
