Responsibility

When you're called and appointed, how do you know your responsibility?


How do you know what you are to do?

Do you stand still while figuring it out? Or can you keep moving while working it out? What confirmation would you want?

And when no one's looking, do you still do what's right? What's the price to buy your integrity?

Responsibility's a big word, a heavy load...is it really?

We aren't called to climb the mountain of self-justification by merit and works--a gift is a gift is a gift. Just accept your authority and blessing. Period.

Can you shine where you are placed? To make positive the negative?

Breaking forth to a new level demands a new way, new thoughts, new attitude, new relationships, new knowledge, new commitment...a new you? Well, you're still you. Yet you're also become the you you're meant to be.

So back to this thing called responsibility. If you've started something, surely you're responsible to see it through. If you're given responsibility, then surely you're expected to fulfil what's asked of you.

Thoughts random? Not really. Like a jigsaw, the pieces fall into place little by little. You're not expected to complete it on your own. But really to connect and commune with God who'll guide you along.

Note to self: Connect.

Nice post, Edmund!
Just like what Pastor Kong say: "Maturity is a measure of accepting responsibility."
