A Daily Dose Of Delight

Character. Are our decisions building it or weakening it?

Someone has said, “All children must look after their own upbringing. Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.” D.L. Moody once said, “Character is what you are in the dark.” Ellen White tells us that Character is the “only treasure we will take from this world to the next.” (Christ’s Object Lessons p 332)
Surely we need to explore values: those qualities which reveal a strong character, and look for ways to embrace them and demonstrate them!

A Clean Heart

Each of us is given a heart that can function in a number of amazing ways. That heart both supports our physical body and gives us the strength to work and play. God also refers to giving us ‘a clean heart’ a special peace that gives a sense that God is with us. We could get technical and argue that God’s love doesn’t actually affect our physical heart. Tell that to someone who has felt the tightness leave their chest when they felt that they were loved and safe! While we need to care for and protect our bodies, we also need to remember to ask God to care for and protect our ‘spiritual’ heart.
