Gifts of Character – Responsibility

My reflection today is on the Virtue / Character of Responsibility. Responsibility is about being accountable for our words, actions, promises, mistakes. We do not focus on what others are responsible for, but we live our lives knowing that whether we realize it or want it to be so, each of us influences every life that we touch. We are role models and responsible for the life we lead.

Today I am reflecting on the responsibility I have as a role model not just to those who are close to me, but to every life that comes in contact with me. When I live up to promises made or correct the mistakes I make, those involved are learning a way of conducting themselves that they can choose to accept also. I am responsible for giving my best, to work for excellence in all that I do which help me to fulfill my purpose in life of bringing out the best in myself and others.
