How does your tribe expect to be treated? Character counts to them.
What would your tribe say about your character? Here’s one way to find out.
Select the at least five principles from the list below. Describe how you exhibit these principles as you interact with people and why these principles are important to the members of your tribe.

Love Defines Character
Bottom line is that your tribe members want to be loved.
The good thing is that this is what Jesus tells us to do. We are reminded that we are to be humble and place the interests of others above our own. To Jesus, Character counts.
For people to get involved with your ministry they want to know you have their best interests at heart – that you have compassion for what they need. To them Character counts.
The key ingredient here is to give first and give often. And do this before you ask for anything. Often people will ask if they can help you once you helped them. Once they buy-in to your cause they will tell family, friends and acquaintances.
Now you don’t want to be pulling money out of your pocket as a way to give – not for your tribe. You need a cause for them to rally around.
So, find your cause and start blogging about it. This is the giving you need to do. Make sure your character counts.
