What does it mean to have the character trait of Responsibility?

Responsibilities are things that we must do or look after.

It is usually a duty to deal with something or have control over someone.

Examples of responsibility include:


Doing chores


Looking after a pet


Taking care of a baby


Doing a job you’re paid to do

Can you think of any responsibilities you have?

Do you:


Listen to and obey your parents?


Look out for a younger sibling?


Make your bed?


Set a good example for others through sharing or being kind?

We can have many different responsibilities. Sometimes a responsibility is given to us and other times we take responsibility for something or someone.

If someone leaves a mess, we can choose to be responsible and clean it up.

Sometimes responsibilities can be hard and frustrating, but it’s important for us to remember that God is with us, helping us and guiding us in all we do.

Why should we take responsibility?

Taking responsibility isn’t always about ourselves.

It can be rewarding and it can add to our lives, but it can also be something that takes away our time or our possessions.

It is important that we remember that responsibilities are important no matter whether we can see a direct or instant reward.

Remember: not all rewards can be physically seen. Some rewards are of the spirit, in our hearts and in the hearts of others.

Galatians 6:3-7

“For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For every man shall bear his own burden. Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”


What It Means

These verses tell us to be honest, humble ourselves, and take full responsibility for what we do or don’t do and for what we are called to do in following Christ. One of our responsibilities is to share the good, the good news and God’s good, wise word.

We must be humble and pray for guidance and wisdom from The Holy Spirit.

We must take care to live in the spirit, to not give in to sinful desires, or rely on our good works, on our fleshly doings, to be made righteous before God. Only those who plant God’s spirit, by faith in Christ will result in a beautiful harvest in the form of eternal life.

There is more you can read, learn, and gain from the wisdom found in the bible.

Why do all these things?

Because they will not only add to your life but to the lives around you. To your loved ones.

God’s word gives us the wisdom to avoid, get through, and learn from our tribulations/problems.

Our parents are our God given mentor, our teachers for life, to help guide us, give us the knowledge they have learnt so we don’t make the same mistakes they did, and by doing so, we can inherit the skills they have spent their lifetime building.

We sing songs to remind us of scripture and help us keep the joy in our hearts, to make the bad times better and the good times even more joyous.

We love our neighbour because love changes hearts. Love finds the lost, God is love (1 John 4:7-8)

Let's look at a story in the Bible

The Story of Zacchaeus

found in Luke 19:1-10

The story teaches us that the responsibilities placed on our flesh are overcome by our responsibilities given to us by God. God must come first.

Zacchaeus was a tax collector: his fleshly job was to take money from people, even the poor. Jesus showed him kindness, through which Zacchaeus had realisation of his wrongdoings and made a promise to do right.

Jesus/God saves us from our sins. The lost can be found and bad deeds can be used for good through God. We look at the story of Zacchaeus as an example of God’s good work within people, to change their hearts and lead them to love and kindness.
