What a character! Did you ever say that about a child’s antics? Well, I want to be a character. I want to be a Christ-character, someone who looks like Jesus. If I want to become like Jesus, I have to be intentional about it. Tweet this. I have to plan on it and work it into my day just like anything else.
In my last blog I talked about how my Day-Planner needs to reflect a to-be mindset instead of the to-do’s. How do I start living that way?
Here’s a fun project that maybe you can help me out on. Let’s think of “Be” character traits from A to Z. Here’s my list so far. Can you add to it? Note: If I’m trying to get away from finding my self worth in what I accomplish, P is for Productive does not count. 🙂
To get our creative juices going and to help us reflect on what God wants us to be, check out 1 Corinthians 15:58, Col 3:12-17, Ephesians 4:32. Micah 6:8, and Galatians 5:22,23
C aring, Courageous, Creative, Content, Cheerful
F orgiving, Faithful, forbearing
G enerous, gentle
H oly, humble
J ust, joyful
P eaceful, Patient, Prayerful
T hankful, trusting
Each day, I want to write one character trait at the top of my to-do list. Then I want to commit to prayer, asking God’s Holy Spirit to help me exhibit that trait in my life that day. After all, God produces the fruit within us. It’s a partnership deal and we can’t do it without Him.
Your turn! Help me fill in the blanks and add to the list!
