70 Things I Learned about Character from Dr. Myles Munroe


I’ve always considered myself to have a good understanding of what character means, until this past Tuesday and Wednesday. Dr. Myles Munroe gave us an eye opening revelation on character at the Kingdom Summit, which was hosted by the Kingdom Chamber of Commerce and Living Faith Christian Center. It was a 2 day conference to inspire business and ministry leaders to develop in the principles of God’s Kingdom. Below are 70 things I learned from the conference about character and this is just a small sample set of what I learned. Be blessed and share this with someone else!

  1. Character protects power and vision.
  2. Leadership is only as safe as your character.
  3. Your gift can never protect your character but your character will protect your gift.

  17. True leadership is determined by character.
  18. Character is not a gift you are not born with.

  27. Character means you don’t have another life; you are the same in the day and the same in the night.
  28. What do you do when the pressure comes? Do you collapse like Samson or do you stand like Joseph? Both of them lost their clothing yet one of them stood past the test of the trials.
  29. “Hypocrite” simply means a person with many masks.
