Taking Responsibility For Your Life - Part 1


Am I taking responsibility for my life, really?

What is rewarded is repeated.

Irresponsibility is not a neutral thing.

So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.  Genesis 1:27 NLT

Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.”  Genesis 1:28 NLT

Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food.  Genesis 1:29 NLT

You are happiest when you are responsible.

When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God among the trees.  Genesis 3:8 NLT

Then the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”  Genesis 3:9 NLT

He replied, “I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked.”  Genesis 3:10 NLT

“Who told you that you were naked?” the Lord God asked. “Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?” Genesis 3:11 NLT

The man replied, “It was the woman you gave me who gave me the fruit, and I ate it.”  Genesis 3:12 NLT

Then the Lord God asked the woman, “What have you done?” “The serpent deceived me,” she replied. “That’s why I ate it.” Genesis 3:13 NLT
