Activity reveals character.

Watching a fictional show about car racing, one driver nudged the opponent’s car, causing him to spin out and lose the race. 

“Is that legal?” I asked Ron.

“No, but people do it.”

Causing another person to crash to win a race says a lot about the driver’s character. For the fool in today’s verse, they consider evil conduct sport. Winning a race by cheating doesn’t constitute victory.

Understanding comes with wisdom, which knows how you play the game matters more than who wins or loses. 

Character develops one good decision at a time. Consistently doing the right thing repeatedly develops strong character and helps us become more Christ-like.

Seek wisdom and understanding. Let God’s guidance and directions develop a Christ-like character in you.

Lord, forgive us for our poor choices. Help us develop Christ-like character as we consistently choose You.  Give us the tools to make good decisions that honor and serve You always. IJNIP. Amen
