Responsibility Begins With Yourself

We exist in an age of great disconnect between word and deed.

Some people say they are compassionate, for example, yet their actions belie their words. Recently I heard earnest people say they were compassionate of homosexual people, yet in their actions they proclaimed the opposite. Same with racial or ethnic differences, or proclamations of peace and justice.

Some people spout off all manner of unkind words, but friends or supporters tell people to watch their actions rather than listen to words.

But words matter.

Responsibility. Either stance reveals irresponsibility.

We cannot preach to others about responsibility and responsible behavior.

Responsibility must be a decision and habit made within yourself.
