The virtues in life are humilty, morality, love upstandingness, integrity, dignity, rectitude,sacrificial spirit, honesty, honour, incorruptibility, probity, propriety, decency, respectability, nobility, nobility of soul/spirit, worthiness, trustworthiness, meritoriousness, irreproachableness, blamelessness, purity, pureness and high principles.
These virtues are worth having! Let them become the essence of your character. Pick some and make them your core values. Tie them around your waist, let them become the lens you see the world with; the footwear you walk the path with.
Jesus Christ is a good example of someone that can be called man of virtues. Quoted below is what was written in Phillipians 2 about his character.
” You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
Though he was God,
he did not think of equality with God
as something to cling to.
7 Instead, he gave up his divine privileges;
he took the humble position of a slave
and was born as a human being.
When he appeared in human form,
8 he humbled himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross.
9 Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
and gave him the name above all other names,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father “.
Virtue is greatness. Find it and possess it- Babashola Timothy Ayeni.
