“As such, character determines behavior just as behavior demonstrates character.”

We always become who we are. It may take time or stress or illness, but what’s inside us tends to come out. Our character serves as the wellspring from which our behavior emerges. Os Guiness confirms this:

            Character…is the essential ‘stuff’ a person is made of, the inner reality and quality in which thoughts, speech, decision, behavior, and relations are rooted. As such, character determines behavior just as behavior demonstrates character.
