In this episode, Liz and his friends put on a three-act play to teach about responsibility.

The Bible has a lot to say about taking responsibility. For example, we are to be responsible for the way we act toward others (Luke 10:30-37). We are responsible for the way we treat our families (1 Timothy 5:8). We are responsible to study God’s Word (2 Timothy 2:15). And we are responsible for the way we handle money (Hebrews 13:5).

God has done so much for us. He created us. He sent his son, Jesus, to die for us. He saves us from the punishment for our sins. As a way to show our thanks to him for all he’s done for us, we want to honor him. We do this by taking responsibility to live a life pleasing to him.

Want to dig deeper and learn about being responsible? Check out Proverbs 6:6-11, Luke 16:10, and 2 Corinthians 9:6.


Get two jars and a supply of something small, like candy pieces, coins or small rocks. Put a strip of tape on each jar. On one jar, write “Responsible.” On the other jar, write “Not so much.” Over the next week, ask your parents to tell you when they think you’ve been responsible and when you haven’t. When they say you have been, put an item in the “Responsible” jar. When they say you haven’t, put an item in the “Not so much” jar. At the end of the week, see which jar is fuller. If your “Not so much” jar has more items, ask the Lord to help you become more responsible.
