All humans are with flaws, but many individuals try to cover up their imperfections by making up excuses. On the other hand, some officials were brave enough to openly admit their faults and resigned to assume responsibility. I truly admire these people for their courage.
Whether we admit our failures or not, consequences will arrive one day. In short, we are responsible for what we have done.
As Christians, we are held accountable to God for the way we live on earth. Let’s ponder the teaching of Paul.
12Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— 13each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. 14If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. 15If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire. (1 Corinthians 3:12–15 ESV)
Let’s pose a question to God. “I know I am responsible for the things that I say and do on earth, could you teach me to become a better person?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray for the courage to take up the responsibility for the things that you do.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Share with a believer the lesson of being responsible for your own actions.
