Character Study

For the last few months, I’ve been acting as a mentor to someone who is doing a study course in Christian Leadership. Session 4 was all about developing a Christ-like Character.

This was on one of the handouts from that session. I thought it was worth sharing…

Reputation is what you are supposed to be.

Character is what you are.

Reputation is a photograph.


Character is your face.

Reputation is what you have when you come to a new place.

Character is what you have when you go away.

Reputation is learned in an hour.

Character does not come to light for years.

Reputation is made in a moment.

Character is built in a lifetime.

Reputation grows like a mushroom.


Character like an oak.

Reputation is made from a single newspaper report

Character is built from a life of toil.

Reputation makes you rich or poor.

Character makes you happy or miserable.

Reputation is what people say about you on your tombstone.

Character is what the angels say about you around the throne of God
