What is the definition of character? It means the mental/moral qualities distinctive to an individual. Our character is shaped by our experiences. Godly character is what is perfect and worth pursuing. Even becoming a successful leader encompasses character-driven traits. Character-driven leadership focuses on leading a life that influences others in every way. I've learned that cultivating a personal relationship with Jesus by spending time with Him is how I am developing godly character traits. If I want to see positive change in my life, it will not just happen. I must spend time reading and studying the Bible daily. Only then will I be transformed and take on the character of Jesus - loving, joyful, peaceful, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled.
