Quotable Wednesday

I'm breaking from my normal CS Lewis quotes today because this quote stopped me this week:

Lysa used this quote to remind us that every day we are building character. Each decision we make, each word we speak or action we take shapes how others see us.  It reminded me of this verse:

Matthew 7:20 So then, you will know them by their fruits. 

No, we aren't perfect. But we can do our best to make good decisions that birth great descriptions that ultimately point people back to God. That means loving when others are unloveable. Biting our tongue when we want to unleash it. And apologizing whenever we've been wrong--because we will be, plenty. (Big ol' hand raising going on over here!)

What decisions are you making today?

  1. This is so timely, my son and I were just discussing the ramifications of the decisions we make. I can't wait to share this with him.
