Being Responsible For Your Actions

Welcome to series #4 Being Responsible For Your Actions

It is very important that we start teaching our children, at a very young age, to be accountable for their actions. Their first reaction, when confronted, is to blame someone else in the hopes of not being punished. If this is not corrected, it will carry over into their adult life. They will always be pointing the finger at someone else.

Taking responsibility does not come naturally, it has to be taught to our kids just like we teach them good manners and how to behave.

We must teach our children to admit when they made a mistake or did something wrong. They should always be willing apologize when they were wrong.

Our kids need to learn that they are responsible for the choices that they make, not anyone else! They also need to know that there will be consequences for those choices.

Being responsible for your actions gains respect. It makes you a confident, trust worthy person.

What does the Bible say about being responsible for your actions?

Galatians 6:5 – “Each one will carry his own load”

Romans 14:12 says, “So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.”

“Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment, and learn again to exercise his will – his personal responsibility.”
Albert Einstein
