Ability or Character
“The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.”(Proverbs 11:5)
Today’s Morsel: All of us are endowed by our Creator with certain talents and abilities. And it usually takes those abilities to help us accomplish our goals and reach the top. I have seen many men and women reach the top by their abilities, but due to a lack of character it did not keep them there. If we think that it is all about ability, we had better think again. As Solomon states, “The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.” Ability without character is a train wreck waiting to happen.
Sing: Jesus! Jesus! You know what’s best for me. So, lead on, Jesus! I’ll go wherever You lead.
Thought For Today: Ability may take you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.
