Growing character is the harder road. Impression settles for a quick coat of cheerful paint over rotted boards; character repairs with lumber, nails, and sweat. Impression seeks a slim waist using diet pills or a cinched-up corset; character relies on exercise and vegetables. Impression seeks to impress others with a power suit and firm handshake; character always pairs such externals with real competence in one’s role and genuine interest in others.
In the end the way of character is the only route to the authenticity Jesus possessed—a oneness between what lay within and what others saw. –Upended by Jedd Medefind & Erik Lokkesmoe
