DROPS OF CHARACTER
Have you ever watched an ICICLE form?
Did you notice how the dripping water froze, ......one drop
at a time, ....until the icicle was a foot long.... or more?
If the water was clean, the icicle remained clear and sparkled
brightly in the sun, but if the water was slightly muddy, the
icicle looked cloudy, its beauty spoiled.
Our character is formed in like manner.
Each thought or feeling adds its influence.
Each decision we make - both great and small contributes its part.
Everything we take into our mind:
images/words help create our character.
Acts that develop habits of hate, falsehood, & evil intent mar and
eventually destroy us---but habits born of love, truth & goodness
silently mold us into the image of God!
Character is what you are in the dark.
I read this once in a public speaking class in college
and it truly made an impression on me.
Whenever I see icicles, I always think of this passage.
It constantly reminds me to maintain my character at all time because I personally
want my icicle to be beautiful and sparkly.
What is your icicle like?
