Good character could be summarized as simply being in the habit of listening to, yielding to, and obeying the Spirit of God. Some people would want to replace “Spirit” with “word,” but I like the emphasis on the Spirit better because while the Word is God’s revelation of Himself, our relationship with God is a relationship with a person, not with an idea. God reveals Himself through ideas communicated through words, but wisdom is not about our retention of ideas. It’s about a relationship to a person who is the source of all good things.
