Passage: Matthew 25:14
Series: Own It
Life isn’t fair. When we draw the short straw, we’re quick to point that out. We’re quick to come up with excuses and deny the responsibilities we’ve been given, whether we’ve received much in life or very little. But the truth is, it’s not about how unfair life is, it’s really about how we respond. We don’t get to choose what opportunities come our way, but we do get to choose our responses. Your response ability is up to you.

Passage: Joshua 7:2
Series: Own It
"Let me pray about it" has somehow become our "get out of responsibility free" card. When faced with difficult, on-your-feet situations, we make excuses that sound prayerful and honest. But what if the time for prayer passes and you're still not moving? What if action is what's needed and you're still waiting? What if someone told you, "Don't just kneel there, do something!"? It's time for some action. This is not the time to pray.

Passage: Galatians 6:3
Series: Own It
You probably haven't thought about the Archimedes Principle in years, but it's still true. Basically, it explains the buoyancy of water. When leveraged, ships float. When ignored, they sink. The same holds true with the nature of responsibility. If we leverage it, the outcome is a gift. If we ignore it, the outcome seems like a punishment. So how do we make the most of responsibility?
