I believe in personal accountability. I believe It lays the burden of responsibility squarely on the shoulders of anyone who will bear it. I also believe, with that burden comes a freedom that cannot be expressed in words.
What about inequality?
What about providence?
What about things that are out of my control?
We are not born with the same abilities, the same access or the same opportunities. Does that somehow diminish my responsibility as a human being to do the very best I can with what I have? No. History shows us that some of the most successful people who ever lived overcame tremendous adversity. Was it because of providence or their own persistence? Do you think these great men and women saw themselves as victims?
Providence and personal accountability are flip sides of the same coin.
So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.Genesis 45:8 KJV
