Jesus was called the "express image" of God in Hebrews 1:3. The Greek word for "express image" is "charakter." Jesus had the mark or character of the Father on Him. In a different yet similar way, you and I should have the mark of the character of Jesus upon our lives.To develop character in children:
- Begin chiseling early and continue doing so until the desired image is developed.
- Make discussions about character a regular occurrence in the home.
- Make corrections by pointing out missing character qualities.
- Praise character qualities.
We naturally tend to praise knowledge, position, talent, accomplishment, achievement, or physical beauty or strength. The Bible is full of praise for character! An especially exciting study is noticing who Jesus praised and how He praised them.
