Character Still Counts

with James Merritt

March 16-18, 2022

If your reputation met your character on the street, would they recognize each other? Scripture gives us examples of people just like us who were flawed and failed—people like Daniel, Joseph, Esther, and Abraham. Their stories provide us with the tools we need to build good character as we let God take care of our reputations.
