Fame is vapor; popularity an accident; riches take wings. Only one thing endures, and that is character. –Greeley
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. Psalm 37:23-24
The steps…the order of his life…his character…his life as a whole and not just for a moment in time- I think I read part of this post from something someone shared yesterday but I’m not sure. Anyway the Lord sees our life as a whole, from beginning to end. It is not defined by one poor choice or slip of the tongue. I am thankful when I fall He doesn’t kick me to the curb never to be used of Him again. What He does is come to where I am at and helps me up. Just as He lifted me from the miry clay, He lifts me day by day! As someone once said, “He saved me, He is saving me, and I will be saved!” So what makes a good man…good, life-long character!
