The mystery of Character

Martin Luther king junior once said I have a dream that my four little children will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

You cant discount character it speaks for itself.

Academic qualification,connections,hard work ,smartness,anointing can get you to the top but only character can keep and sustain you there.Some people are not under any demonic attack,some are not pursued by enemies .

truth is this ,for some it is bad character,character deficiency that’s closing doors against them ,against their opportunities and even helpers detest them.

Joseph was a slave in the house of potiphar for a time he was in charge of the affairs of that household and their business interest.He was trusted with practically everything .

Genesis 39:7 says

and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and said, “Come to bed with me.But he refused. “With me in charge,” he told her, “my master does not concern himself with anything in the house; everything he owns he has entrusted to my care.No one is greater in this house than I am.

My master has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?

And though she spoke to Joseph day after day, he refused to go to bed with her or even be with her.


On daily basis she kept on pressing him to sleep with her.

Listen to me

Joseph could have agreed.After all he was in charge and the lady of the house was ready to conceal the relationship while supporting his authority in the house of portiphar.

But guess what Joseph refused her .the predator wasn’t ready to take no for an answer.the rest of the story you know.

Joseph ended up in prison wrongfully accused and sentenced for many years.

Hear me

You cant talk about integrity without first observing,attesting and forming an opinion about a persons character.
