Precious Stones of Godly Character

“Sense shines with a double luster when it is set in humility. An able, yet humble man is a jewel worth a kingdom.” -William Penn

Five character qualities worth pursuing in times of difficulty:

  • Trust in God when your hopes are deferred
  • Contentment while you’re waiting
  • Faithfulness to sow to the future when you’re in tears
  • Graciousness when others receive what you would like
  • Humility to pray to be a blessing, rather than to receive a blessing [1]
