The qualities of Jesus are truly endless! So, where did this list of character traits come from? The short version is that we recognized a need and worked backwards, asking the question “If we were more like Jesus, what would this situation look like? Explosive anger, tantrums, and flying objects? Self Control is the secret. Not sharing toys? Generosity would solve this problem! Holding a grudge? Forgiveness. And when all else fails? LOVE. We focus on a different character trait of Jesus each month. Therefore, Year 1 of CB&J has twelve W.O.W. words: compassion, contentment, courage, faithfulness, forgiveness, generosity, gratitude, joy, love, obedience, perseverance, and self-control.
