Virtue is the mark of a life well lived, and it takes a lifetime to cultivate. (John Stonestreet, worldview writer)
Have you noticed how often we seem to extol the virtue of some notable person only to have them act in a way that discredits the acclaim we’ve given them? How disappointing! As Stonestreet suggests, integrity and character are developed over many years. Let’s encourage the promising young people we know to keep working on their character development.
I know, my God, that you examine our hearts and rejoice when you find integrity there. (1 Chronicles 29:17)
