That the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. Tim 3:17
Character is something that you hold fast to inside, and that people see in you on the outside. More importantly, it is something that God sees in you always.
True character is shown in how you act in any situation. Actions do speak louder than words in many circumstances. How can we shine for Jesus if we are showing the world darkness through our actions? Your own character can be your judge. Chaplaincy Servants will place God first, and allow God to guide all actions, thoughts and words, through prayer.
