What Are Some Of Your Character Qualities?
Please contact us if you have any questions or comments or want encouragement.
Each of us has our character qualities, some are positive, and some are negative. There are many important Christian character qualities. God has delivered me from some of my negative character qualities, yet we all will be wrestling with them for the rest of our lives.
Please look at your strengths and weaknesses in your character qualities and start working on them today. Ask God to help you rid yourself from the sin and character defects that you have been holding on to. Being aware of them is a perfect start, then begin to develop them for your good. ~ Bill Greguska
