I’ve always felt that a person’s character was their best asset.
My mom used to tell me when I was growing up that you may be able to fool people but God sees everything. That worked. I behaved. LOL!!! Not because I’m such a good person but because I knew my karma would be affected. Things we do can often come back to bite us.
Seriously, though. Character traits have more value for me than a person’s accomplishments. I’ve known some bad people in high places. What a person has doesn’t mean much. It is who the person is, inside that matters.
Having power, wealth, position is a true test of character. Having unlimited choices and opportunities to do what one wishes. To have power, control, yet still holding oneself accountable for consequences is a true test of what a person’s soul is made of.
That’s why I like what my mom used to say about how no matter what you do, God knows the truth. It doesn’t matter if a person is religious or what higher power they lean towards. We know the truth within ourselves and we live with ourselves and that knowledge shapes who we are as human beings. Yes, we can fool people around us but we cannot fool ourselves if we are not truthful and honest, we know it. This is why it has always been my opinion that a good character is stronger than anything.
This is just something I was thinking about today.
