So what determines how much far you can go in this life or what you can accomplish in God's Kingdom? What are the most important things you can develop? Your talents? Your intellect? Your work ethic? Your skill set? (Get some mad skillz…)
More and more, I believe this is true: Who we are are will always set the limits on what we can do.
I used to think that competency trumped everything. But ultimately, I think character trumps competency.
I am always looking for ways to grow my abilities – to be a better leader, to be a better preacher, to be a better dad, a better husband. But in each of those fields, I need to put one quest above them all: to have a character more deeply shaped by Christ.
What do you think about character and accomplishment? What helps you grow your character?
