Character Trait for March:

Discernment vs. Shortsightedness

The God-given ability to understand the deeper reasons why things happen.

But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, …. for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.’” ~ 1 Samuel 16:7
