Walk around any book store and you'll see rows and rows of self-help books. But the secret to improving your character can't be found in the latest fad philosophy. In fact the advice you really need comes from faith - plain and simple.
Peter 1:5-7 is about digging deep in your soul to bring your faith out in the open where you can add to it. Goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, kindness, and love is a roster of character traits that you can improve upon. Take it one holy quality at a time, and you'll see a better you, emerge.
