Take Responsibility For The Relationships In Your Life

Leaders accept responsibility for what happens around them. Followers never accept responsibility for anything. It is always someone else’s fault that things don’t work. They blame their parents, siblings, teachers, and the government for everything. Clearly, we must all strike a balance between accepting full responsibility and accepting none at all. Accepting full responsibility for everything and anything may crush you. However, remaining aloof and failing to accept adequate responsibility may limit your ability to achieve much in life. When it comes to relationships, regardless of the type, you must accept some responsibility for the situation.

This is not about tolerating a lot because you don’t want to lose anyone. Over time, you will realize the importance of setting clear boundaries and determining what you can and cannot tolerate. The idea is that many destiny relationships fail because neither of the parties is willing to care for the relationship. It is almost as if we expect angels and other heavenly beings to help us with nurturing relationships. Matthew 5:23-24 emphasizes the importance of proactive measures to reconcile and maintain healthy relationships, even over religious practices.

The Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) exemplifies the concept of taking responsibility for the well-being of others, including those outside our immediate circle. A teacher must be responsible for their students’ learning. The student must accept responsibility for their learning. It goes both ways. Both lovers in a relationship must agree to do whatever it takes to make things work. You do not have to wait for your protégé to contact you; you can also initiate contact. Ephesians 4:32 encourages us to take responsibility for our actions in relationships by practicing kindness, compassion, and forgiveness towards others, mirroring God’s forgiveness towards us.
