A thought.....

....from How to be a Man of character in a World of Compromise; Insights from the Book of Proverbs by Richard Exley

"Adversity tests a man's character, his ability to hang in there when times get tough. Success, on the other hand, tests a man's integrity, his ability to remain true to himself, morally and ethically pure." (p.167)

That about sums it up...Whatever situation we find ourself in...

I might add that during adversity a Christian will surrender all to the Lord and look more to eternal things.

During times of prosperity, the same man will not forget where he was when he had that eternal perspective and low period...
