Chapter 29 – What a Character! – page 158

Quick! What’s the definition of “character”?

Did you think of a person in a book, cartoon, TV show or movie… such as Peter Pan, Hannah Montana, Nancy Drew or Prince Caspian?

The word “character” can also be used when you’re talking about someone’s inner qualities, such as honesty, courage and kindness. This week’s chapter in Designer Genes has fun activities that help us think about some of the character traits each of us should have, especially if we are followers of Jesus.

Here’s something else to try: Make a list of all the words you can think of that describe Jesus (however much you may know about him). Then look at that list and circle all the words that you think honestly also fit you. Got a bunch of words left over? Why not pray and ask God to help you develop those character traits?

Hey… how’s your summer going? Please send me a note! 😀 I’m at:

Have a great weekend!
