Developing Christian character is at the heart of what it means to grow in Christ. One method of reaching your goal of developing Christ-like character is keeping a list of character qualities on a 3x5 card. Look at these cards when you have waiting time and think of something you can do wherever you are to implement that quality. This will give an immediate opportunity to practice the character trait.
For example; you have to wait at your doctor's office, you might pull out your card with a reminder to practice patience. Instead of fuming about the late doctor, you might see if there is someone in the waiting room you could converse with. Or maybe you could pray for whatever situation has caused the doctor to run late. Maybe someone ahead of you had a medical emergency and they need your prayer.
Taking advantage of little opportunities to develop Christlike character is an important way to redeem the time.
