The thing you need to understand, is that in order to have and to hold, and live with/in/for true love absolutely, you must embody all its characteristics and you can't do that by trying to be virtuous, in your own strength. That's called self-righteousness (righteousness is a synonym of virtuousness). You can only embody absolute virtuousness in the supernatural presence of the divine nature and awareness of the one, true, living, Great Omniscient Deity of absolute, undying, true love and majestic virtuousness, the Holy Ghost, that transforms your character and makes you a perfect gentleman or gentlewoman of true love, a saint by any other name.
"Beware of practicing your righteousness (virtuousness) before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven."Matthew 6:1
NB: The lion and lamb icons denote the virtue as either being active or passive
active lion-like virtue
Being responsible means others can trust you to do things to the best of your abilities. You accept accountability for your actions, as actions always have consequences. When you make a mistake, you offer amends instead of excuses. Responsibility is the ability to respond capably and to make wise choices and decisions.
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.Proverbs 22:6
