WHAT IS RESPONSIBILITY?
A task assigned by someone or created by one’s own promise or circumstances that one must fulfill, and which has a consequent penalty for failure. A responsibility is a particular obligation for which an individual is to be held accountable, in order to remain upstanding member of a group or community. It’s the state or fact of being responsible, answerable, or accountable for something within one’s power, control, or management. It’s an instance of being responsible: the burden someone is obligated to fulfill in order to meet a particular need.
TYPES OF RESPONSIBILITIES
• Social Responsibility-
• Civic Responsibility
• Cooperate Responsibility
• Personal Responsibility. It is the act of taking responsibility for: The things one says or does, the actions one undertakes and taking care of one’s business and obligations. Personal responsibility can also be described as a person’s “response-ability,” meaning the capability of responding to, or meeting and fulfilling, the challenges that are presented to him. Someone who is said to have a high level of personal responsibility is considered to be a person of good character, with high moral and ethical standards. Every phase of life is a season to undertake responsibilities that ultimately determine the outcome of the next phase of your life. The responsibilities you undertake determines: your value and placement and gives you your name.
TAKING RESPONSIBILITES means
Taking personal spiritual responsibilities (Rom. 12:1-2). Maintain regular fellowship with God in prayers. Study and meditation on God’s word. Maintain a right stand with God and dealings with your flesh. Rid yourself of these little foxes that ruin the vain like lust, anger, envy and living a crucified life (Gal.2:20).
