Gifts of Character – Responsibility

My reflection today is on the Virtue / Character of Responsibility. Responsibility is about focusing on what I have committed to do. It is about being accountable and keeping our promises. We recognize the positive actions we take will give confidence in our reliability. Even when we make a mistake, we have the courage to fix them without excuses.

Today as I reflect on my responsibilities to my family, students, and community I want to be known for dependability to keep my word. My responsibility is to work on myself. I realize though that my words and actions will have an influence on others, so I feel a responsibility to myself and community to strive for excellence. The practice of responsibility helps me fulfill my purpose.
