Character – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Our character is but the stamp on our souls of the free choices of good and evil we have made through life.

Challenge:

Each day we are faced with decisions which impact our character and ultimately our soul. Continue to make those decisions that bring you closer to God. Moreover, let your decisions be an example to others who are seeking to be closer to God.

The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. Matthew 12:35 (NABRE)

Wisdom – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Make peace with your past, so it won’t mess up the present.

Thought:

Attitude – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

Reference:

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6 (NABRE)

Fellowship – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ Luke 15:6 (NABRE)

Faith – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.

Challenge:

For most things in life, nothing stays the same; you are either moving ahead or falling behind. Ask God for the perserverance to keep the faith and to never stop rowing no matter how strong life’s currents are flowing against you.

Reference:

But we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5 :3-4 (NABRE)

Are you fit company for the person you wish to become?

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Phillipians 3:12 (NABRE)
