Behavior vs. Character

2 thoughts on “Behavior vs. Character”

  1. Jacob,

    I grew up hearing that we Christians didn’t have to ‘like’ everyone we met, but we were called to ‘love’ them. To me, love is an action, and not an emotion – in fact you were influential in teaching me that. Becuase of this, I believe that there will often be times in our relationships where our loving actions are required and may not be accompanied by an emotional feeling.

    1. I agree with that. Its one of those things where the behavior, loving people I dont really like, can be modified to show me the character flaw behind it, probably pride. So in order to see people the way God does, and therefore like and love most everyone I meet, I need to work on humility. Does that make sense?
