Are there things I can do to grow my character?

Deuteronomy 8:2“Remember how the Lord your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey his commands.”

You are not born with godly character; it is developed through experience and testing and a commitment to knowing God and his Word.

1 Samuel 15:22-23But Samuel replied, “. . . Obedience is better than sacrifice. . . . So because you have rejected the command of the Lord, he has rejected you as king.”

Everyone develops character by facing daily challenges and choosing wisely.

2 Corinthians 4:8We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair.

Philippians 1:9I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.

1 Peter 4:19Keep on doing what is right, and trust your lives to the God who created you, for he will never fail you.

Developing character is like developing any other skill. You must practice. Keep on doing what is good and right, and constantly practice character traits like kindness, generosity, compassion, and honesty. What you value most is usually what you will work hardest to attain.
