Talent without character is like a kite without a string… worthless! (Jamy Bechler, leadership trainer)

Do you remember how frustrating it was when you lost your grip on your kite string? Or when you gave the baby a balloon and he or she almost immediately let it go? Both resulted in a lot of unhappiness, didn’t they? How much more significant is the warning by Coach Bechler! No matter how high our aspirations, without integrity and good character, the outcome will be frustrating.

May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God. (Philippians 1:11)
