Character (poem)

 

We must maintain our strength of character to make right choices in life,

For tests will come when we least expect it to tempt us to get into strife.

When problems arise, and the choices get tough,

decisions must be made on the spot.

We must understand, when it comes to character,

it is better to have it than not.

Strength of character is not an item that can be purchased right off the shelf,

It comes from years of doing what’s right, and constantly dying to self.

Our example for character is Jesus Christ, our lives should model His,

for we can’t study for a test of character, it shows up as a pop quiz.
