Personal Responsibility vs Running Away

Sandra Crosnoe - Finding Gems & Sharing Them

Let’s face it – personal responsibility doesn’t just make your heart sing and your feet go all tippy toe now does it. All right most of us haven’t run away from home yet, but we have all thought about it haven’t we!  The more I ponder the problems facing our country, the more I see things are way too easy for us to fix rather than too complex.

You see we want it to be hard.  We want someone else to go do it for us.  We do not want to have to do it ourselves.  Anything but that!  And yet there it is the really important matters of LIFE – so let’s get about it shall we!

Love your neighbor as yourself.

Give and it shall be given unto you.

Bless them that curse you.

Do not get into debt. (If in debt get out asap!)

Follow God and do good.

Rest in Him and Keep the Sabbath.

Do well all that you set your hands to accomplish.

Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, might and soul.

    Sandra, these principles are simply put and that’s the beauty and power of it. It doesn’t take a dissertation to understand them. Nevertheless, when we focus our attention to the evil in the world and become bound up in our own worldly thinking, we tend to fall into a trap that finds our theology practically wanting.

    It is one thing to say that we should love our neighbor as ourselves and bless our enemy. It is another thing altogether to act on it. In my view, if those who proclaim to be of the Christian faith would set themselves to actually working to bless their enemies and love their neighbors (as themselves) there would be a totally different political, social and cultural landscape. One that reflects the light of God’s love into the dark corners of an impoverished world.

    Amen, sister!
    It is a little thought of concept, rather one of those dirty little secrets that we all like to sweep under the rug: we are in trouble by our own actions.
    “It is not our stars, but in ourselves…”
    We need to talk more about this issue, much more.
