Our responsibility is not change; it quite simply is choice. (Paraphrased from Josh Grill, psychologist)
When we look around at the world’s turmoil, we may wonder what our responsibility is. How can we change society? How can we bring peace to war-torn nations? In reality, there may be little we can do to bring about change elsewhere. But we can make choices that will effect change—first of all in ourselves; then, with those we may influence. It all begins with choices.
[Moses] chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time (Hebrews 11:25).
