Character #2

People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character. (Ralph Waldo Emerson 19th century American essayist)

Emerson’s observation may be even more obvious today than three centuries ago. Extreme political positions—whatever your party affiliation—tell a lot about what you believe but even more about your character. We may be able to discover the virtues someone has by the issues she supports in the public square. And that should help us determine who and what to support.

Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character (1 Corinthians 15:33).
