Topic: Responsibility; The Ladder To Greatness
SCRIPTURE: Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean. Isaiah 52:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Taking responsibility is knowing the right thing to do, doing it at the right time and without being told.
MESSAGE: In one of my books, ’30 Secrets To The Top’, it was clearly stated that one of the ladders to the top in life is accepting responsibility. There is no greatness without responsibility.
This was what God saw in David and he became a candidate for the anointing.
Now, what is responsibility?
It is rising up to the occasion. It is the state of being accountable or answerable to someone for an action or for the successful execution of a duty.
David was not the only son of Jesse his father, yet all his brothers probably abandoned their father’s work and left only him to do it. None of them appeared to be willing to work, so the little boy David rose up to the occasion.
Responsibility means proactivity; it is not waiting to be told what to do. It is knowing the right thing to do and doing it without being told.
Responsibility means taking the initiative and the lead; it is rising up to the occasion. This is what it means to demonstrate leadership.
