~Character~ (poem)



You must maintain your strength of character

to make right choices in life,

For tests will come when you least expect it

to tempt you to get into strife.

When troubles arise and choices get tough,

decisions are made on the spot.

Surely you’ll see when it comes to character

it is better to have it than not.

Strength of character is not just an item

that can be purchased right off the shelf.

It comes from years of doing what is right

and constantly dying to self.

Our example for character is the Lord Jesus Christ

our life should model His

For you cannot study for a test of character,

it will show up as a pop quiz.
