The Bible does not define temperament or personality types, but it does state that people are different and have various gifts. God does not treat everyone exactly the same. The Holy Spirit works in our hearts according to our individual needs.

What personality trait in people raises a red flag with you?

The five major personality traits are openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness and neuroticism.

  • Agreeableness is a measure of an individual’s tendencies with respect to social harmony. This trait reflects how well the individual gets along with others, how cooperative or skeptical they are, and how they might interact within a team.
  • Conscientiousness is a measure of how careful, deliberate, self-disciplined, and organized an individual is. Conscientiousness is often predictive of employee productivity, particularly in lower-level positions.
  • Extraversion is a measure of how sociable, outgoing, and energetic an individual is. Individuals who score lower on the extraversion scale are considered to be more introverted, or more deliberate, quiet, low key, and independent. Some types of positions are better suited for individuals who fall on one side of the spectrum or the other.
  • Openness measures the extent to which an individual is imaginative and creative, as opposed to down-to-earth and conventional.
  • Stress Tolerance measures the ways in which individuals react to stress.

Actions speak loud that words

Your actions must correspond with your words!

If the two do not align! Then you lack integrity, and cannot be trust

Without trust, what is friendship or relationship good for

Absolutely nothing!

In the Bible; When Jesus opens the second seal, a fiery red horse comes out! Artists use red sparingly because it commands attention. And God, the master painter, used the brightest red possible to paint the mission of this second rider. This is a “red flag” warning us to be on guard.

This horseman receives power to “take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other.”

Peace, in this story, includes much more than just the absence of war. The Bible’s picture of peace is about the harmony in creation revealed in Genesis 1:31: “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.”

The clearest example of this peace is found in the life of Jesus, given for our sake. He is described as the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6). And when he was born, a multitude of ­angels from heaven gave glory to God and announced the coming of peace on earth (Luke 2:14).

In the picture of the rider on a fiery red horse, however, this ­vision opens our eyes to the power of evil in our midst, robbing creation of God’s peace (shalom). We are especially warned to be on guard about this rider’s goal to create violence, making people kill each other.

We need to be wary of this red flag as we follow Jesus in His mission to bring peace on Earth.

And we pray:

Thank You, God, for warning us about the fiery red horse and rider. Guide us to follow Jesus closely. For the glory of Your Name, we pray. Amen.
