IF SKILL IS KING, THEN CHARACTER IS QUEEN
I hope your week has been great with the whole ease of the lock down situation, most of us are gradually returning to our various work place and businesses.
As we return to our normal lives, here's another piece that clearly tells us the difference between skill and character, and what role they play in an individual's life.
I hope this gives you reason to rethink and act accordingly.

He was pretty much dexterous at his woodwork and upholstery handiwork, for this reason he received loads of patronage from various clients.
Also irresistible was the fact that his prices were pocket friendly. Stephen made homes look attractive with his somewhat Midas touch from his handicraft. He soon grew and expanded with protégés at his beck and call.
Suddenly, on one fateful day, we received a call that Stephen was arrested and put behind bars.
Oops! I guess you are as shocked as I am.
Little did we know that he, alongside his apprentices, had been fraudulently taking clients' properties to his shop, and this time he was clearly caught.
Here's my point, it is good to be skilled but it is better to be of a good behaviour and character.
The reason loads of people rise and fall today is traceable to their character. A Bad Character is like a flat tyre, you'll never move forward until you change.
Character is who you are when no one is watching, as opposed to Reputation which is merely what people think of you on the outside.
Finally, in the words of Apostle Joshua Selman, "WHEN SKILL AND CHARACTER RUN A SPRINT, SKILL WILL WIN. BUT WHEN SKILL AND CHARACTER RUN A MARATHON, CHARACTER WILL ALWAYS WIN."
This is because when the chips are down, Character will always speak.
