Here we have compiled a collection of Biblical and Christian illustrations on the topic of human character.
Credentials vs. Character
Credentials are transient – Character is permanent
Credentials build memories about what we have done – Character builds a legacy for others to follow
Credentials are locked into one person – Character is transferable
Credentials will get us in the front door – Character will keep us there
Credentials tend to invoke jealousy – Character attracts respect & stimulates others to develop character as well
Character commits itself to principle over personal gain, to people over things, to servant hood over lordship, to the log view over the immediate.
