One of the best definitions I’ve ever heard for the meaning of character is this: Character is “who you are when no one is looking.” Some people’s character may be considered strong and others incredibly weak but we all have a measure of it. It’s those quality traits within a single person that initiate discipline, vision, endurance, respectfulness, mercy, and etc. Although character traits are revealed to self and unto others by one’s display of certain qualities, it’s not merited upon any kind of accomplishment nor is calculated upon how others perceive you. Our character is the essence that makes up the one unique you. No two of us are alike.

In light of the recent holiday filled with its sweet tokens of human affection and proclamations of such great favor bestowed upon others, I find myself heaving a bit of a sigh. It’s more so during this time of year that I’m reminded too often of the many interpretations of the definition of love.

This is the title of a book my friend, Beth Bush, gave me over a year ago. It came at a most-needed time as I was in the throes of a major depression. The book was written by a man who gave his life to Christian counseling and was on the faculty of The Masters College and Seminary in California.
