Is doing what’s right,
Whether it’s day,
Or even at night.
Is doing what’s expected,
Knowing that more,
Than I will be affected.
Is when my parents say “Go,”
And I do what I’m told,
Without saying “No.”
Is doing the good thing
To do,
Even when no one,
Tell me to.
It’s a great thing,
I’ll announce it.
I only wish now,
That I could pronounce it.

People who are responsible correctly take care of tasks that
are given to them. For example, if your mom says, “Keep
your room clean,” and you keep it clean, you’ve shown
responsibility. But what about someone who gets a pet and
promises to feed it every day but keeps forgetting? Are they
being responsible? No. God wants us to be responsible and
to do everything as if we are doing it for Him. Listen to
what the Bible says in Colossians 3:17, “And whatever you
do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the
Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
