Only Character Endures
by Charles R. Swindoll
I have walked in my integrity
and I have trusted in the LORD
Nothing speaks louder or more powerfully than a life of integrity. Absolutely nothing!
Nothing stands the test like solid character. You can handle the blast like a steer in a blizzard. The ice may form on your horns, but you keep standing against the wind and the howling, raging storm because Christ is at work in your spirit.
Character will always win the day.
As Horace Greeley wrote: "Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wing, and only character endures."
There is no more eloquent and effective defense than a life lived continually and consistently in integrity. It possesses invincible power to silence your slanderers.
