INTRODUCTION

After a very difficult day at work, Fred told his wife, “I have a very responsible job. Every time something goes wrong . . . the boss thinks I’m responsible.

Houston Chronicle, Oct. 17, 1996, p. 8D

The boss called in his small band of misfit summer employee’s and said, “We’re going to change the way we do things around here!” One kid replied, “Whoa, Dude, you mean were supposed to do things around here?”

Houston Chronicle, May 28, 1996, p. 9D

The underlying theme Paul keeps referring to in chapters 8-10 is responsibility. As a Christian, Paul says, our two main priorities are considering others and glorifying God. In our text, Paul presents three ways we can accept our responsibility and give glory to God.
