THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Responsibility is a lifter of men and destinies.
Responsibility has been confirmed to be a key to authority. The life of responsibility is no stranger to authority. Responsibility is a lifter of men and destinies.
In Scriptures, men of responsibility were men of authority. One of such men was Moses. Responsibility was a key that lifted Moses to greatness.
We see one instance of Moses’ sense of responsibility in Exodus 2:15, when he was running away from Pharaoh. He fled to the land of Median and sat down by a well, probably wondering where next to go, where to sleep and what to eat. Then, some responsible young ladies who were tending the flock of their father came to water the flock. Those girls met another responsible person, Moses, sitting by the well.
Now, when Moses saw these girls trying to water their father’s flock and some shepherds came to attack them, he rose up and defended them.
Please, know that he didn’t know these girls from anywhere, yet he felt it was his duty to defend them. He defended them from being attacked by the shepherds and went ahead to water their flock free of charge. That was responsibility. No wonder Moses rose to be a great man in Scriptures. The father of the girls later sent for Moses, housed him, and gave him a job as well as one of his daughters as wife.
Beloved, don’t do only what you are told to do; do beyond what you are told to do, go the extra mile. Be responsible.
Remember this: Responsibility is a lifter of men and destinies.
1. Make up your mind to go the extra mile.
2. Embrace responsibility at all levels of life.
PRAYER: I receive the grace and discipline to embrace responsibility at all levels of my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: Elephants have highly developed brains, not to mention the largest in the entire animal kingdom. Their brain is 3 or 4 times larger than that of other mammals, although it is smaller in proportion to their enormous body weight.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Divine lifting is your portion as you embrace responsibility in Jesus’ Name.
