Character is the product of daily, hourly actions, and words and thoughts; daily forgivenesses, unselfishness, kindnesses, sympathies, charities, sacrifices for the good of others, struggles against temptation, submissiveness under trial. Oh, it is these, like the blending colors in a picture of the blending notes of music which constitute the man.
What is Christian maturity?
It is silence when our words would hurt;
It is patience when we’re being hurt;
It is deafness when scandal flows;
It is thoughtfulness for another’s woes;
It is sharing whatever little we have;
It is being kind rather than being right most of the time.
