"On earth he showed you his great fire, and you heard his words from out of the fire."
Personal responsibility is an attitude that some might say is lacking in today's world. It seems that everyone has a ready-made excuse for why they simply cannot carry out the work that they promised they would. Aside from the fact that such an attitude will likely alienate you from the important people in your life and potentially put your job at risk, refusing to take responsibility for yourself and your actions is also a spiritual folly. Christian men and women are called by God to stand up and be accountable for all that they do, and it is when we take responsibility that our spirituality can truly be said to be active in our lives. Consider this motivational quote from John C. Maxwell:
"The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That is the day we truly grow up."
