May 14,2007 School's In for the Summer
I've been asked to add my 2 cents (maybe more than it's worth) to a PhD elective course this summer on Curriculum Design. Sounds exciting, eh? Maybe not,but rather important to the process. We'll see how it goes.
Why is Character important?
D. L. Moody is
often attributed with saying "Character is what you are in the
dark," meaning, what you are when no one is looking. Character
is forged on the anvil of experience and suffering (Ro 5:3-5), shaped
and modelled after Christ as the imago Dei we bear is transformed into
His likeness. For us to have integrity of character we must first be
undone (disintegrated, Isaiah 6) and become naked before the face of
God. By the power of the Spirit, we reckon reality, then we take off
the old man (Eph 4, Col 3) and put on the order of new creation (2 Cor
5:17). Character is important because it is the way by which we mirror
the image of God to the world.
