Topic: A Lifting Up Through Uprightness
The uprightness of character is both a lifter of people and a sustainer of the lifted. You are lifted by character and your lifting is also sustained by character. This is why one of the greatest help God can give to you is to assist you to maintain upright character.
SCRIPTURE: Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Uprightness of character is both a lifter of people and a sustainer of the lifted.
It has been confirmed that uprightness is a lifter of life; righteousness is an exalter of destiny.
One of the greatest help God can give anybody in life and in ministry is the help to maintain uprightness of character. The highest thing God can do for you is not necessarily to give you power or money; it is the grace to maintain uprightness of character. This is because any possession or qualification without character is a setup for disaster.
Please understand that to be made visible without character is visibility unto ignominy. It is a kind of visibility that ends with reproach. This is why one of the best help God can give a person is the help to maintain uprightness of life and character. If you have character and you don’t have money, anointing, or possessions, there is nothing to worry about because with time, you will have all of them. However, the tragedy is to have all the other things and lack character because it is a setup for disaster.
So, uprightness of character is both a lifter of people and a sustainer of the lifted. Uprightness of character lifts and then sustains the lifted. It does not matter where people rise to in life, if their character is intact, don’t be afraid for them because they can never crash. On the other hand, it does not matter the level people rise to in life, if their character is defective, their crash is inevitable. And the overall outcome is eternal damnation.
So, the uprightness of character is both a lifter of people and a sustainer of the lifted. You are lifted by character and your lifting is also sustained by character. This is why one of the greatest help God can give to you is to assist you to maintain upright character.
