I have come to realise that your character will either build you or make you fall, especially if you do not deal with the areas of weaknesses and also strenghten the strong areas too. God has given to each one, talents or gifts, how do we use or not use them is our responsibility. If you use them, use them in line with the principles laid down by the Giver, and the more you do, God will honour you. You cannot blame anyone for the way, your life turns out, because you make your choices and you have to take the responsibilities attached to the choices you make. Your character is very important to God, while you are walking with Him and learning to you use your gifts or talents. He will promote you when the time comes, even if man looks down on you. Do not be jealous of what is happening in someone else's life, look into your own life. Whatever you sow, you shall reap. So what am I saying here, Are you using your gifts or talents? Are you sharpening them, refining them, improving them, increasing them, multiplying them. Be fruitful, multiply, take dominion. This is not just about having physical babies. Watch out! Do not let the Master throw you into the fire, because you are not producing for the Kingdom.
