As parents, we want to install godly character traits and good morals in our children. Well, here is a way to be deliberate in our training efforts. There are 49 character traits listed along with a supporting Scripture on the chart below. It is never too late to instill these principles in our children and teens. Traits like: obedience, punctuality, dependability, hospitality, gratefulness, etc. These are all wonderful qualities we admire in others. Why not make it a family project to emphasize each quality? Perhaps one per week? It could revolutionize your family’s life.
It’s entirely too easy to go through the motions of life and all of its busy-ness and miss the key things. We must be deliberate about instilling godly characteristics in our children, particularly while they are very young and especially teachable.
Here is the Duggar family chart of character qualities: (You can print the pdf.)
These would also make an excellent teaching tool for any Sunday School class or Bible study.
