I wish this book was Kindle friendly because I’ve gotten away from reading non digital books and it’s weird to be carrying this book around. I started reading The Quest for Character by Charles R. Swindoll yesterday and I can’t wait to dig in deeper. I’ve started reading The Quest for Character it several times before but never got all the way through it.
Like I said, I started reading it again yesterday and it’s as though I’ve never read it before. This book is timeless and the information is always relevant.
It has been just what I need to hear this week and has reminded me of how important it is to spend time with God.
Here are some of the notes I’ve taken from the first chapter.
Quiet time with God…
- clears my focus
- corrects my vision
- kindles/rekindles my praise toward HIM
- redirects my priorities
- shifts my mind from carnal thinking to eternal thinking
Here’s a summary:
So many voices today tell us that avoiding pain and dodging trouble are the best we can expect from life. Yet God is at work in us. He doesn’t call us to a bland vanilla existence but to an exciting quest for the best thing in life — a heart that reflects the character qualities of Jesus Christ.
Let Chuck Swindoll show you the building blocks of character that God wants to develop in you and how these traits can help you achieve lasting fulfillment. The Quest for Character offers forty encouraging meditations on character qualities that can significantly change your life.
Each brief devotional ends with helpful suggestions for refining your character and scripture readings to draw you into God’s Word.
