John Wooden once said, “Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.” His point was that character matters because character is who we are when no one is around. Outside of Christ, the greatest example of character in the Bible is a guy named Joseph, and in this lesson we examine 3 truths we learn about character from him.
So you will walk in the way of the good
and keep to the paths of the righteous.
21 For the upright will inhabit the land,
and those with integrity will remain in it,
22 but the wicked will be cut off from the land,
and the treacherous will be rooted out of it.”
