Spiritual Musings

your radius of responsibility

Gen 1:26 Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature so they can be responsible.
I’ve lost count of how many times my children have responded with a “But I can’t, I don’t know how.” I’m the parent and I know they can; if I thought they couldn’t, I wouldn’t bother asking them to!
Similarly, as your creator, God knows your strengths and limitations. It is with this knowledge that he gives us all varying responsibilities. It is with the same knowledge that he anticipates spiritual growth in each of us.
So when faced with what seems like too much to handle, remember that your radius of responsibility in your life is indicative of your spiritual growth and integrity. God’s expectations of you are a compliment to your spirituality.
