Ability and Responsibility

“They gave after their ability…”
Ezra 2:69

Ability denotes responsibility. The ability to do right determines our accountability unto God. The balances of the Lord are equal and just. His measure of every individual’s life will be proportional to their ability.

“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good,
and doeth it not, to him it is sin”
James 4:17

Blessed are those who give in the measure they have received. God’s giving of the talents was measured “according to their ability” as was their accountability.

“Ability involves responsibility;
power, to its last particle, is duty.”
Alexander MacLaren
