Genesis 3:12 (ESV) The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.” 13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” The blame game has a long history. Adam blamed Eve-she was the one who gave him the fruit. And he even blamed God. He basically said, “If you wouldn’t have put this woman here, this wouldn’t have happened!“ Eve, of course, blamed the snake. Indeed, blaming can be a damaging part of our lives.
Do you find yourself often trying to shift blame? Blaming is easy, but there’s honor and redemption when you take responsibility for your faults. I am still learning some areas in my life where I have blamed others for things in my life. But we must be intentional not to blame others for wrongs in our lives. When we take responsibility for our lives we experience a special Grace from the Lord to move on with our lives in victory!
Even though often times others have contributed very much to hurts, problems, and trial in our lives. When we take responsibility for our own lives the Lord grants us a special grace to overcome whatever trauma, troubles, and trials that may have or will come our way. On this Thursday morning let’s learn the Grace of Taking Responsibility for our lives!
Point to ponder- Having a mature relationship with the Lord enables you to take responsibility for your own life. Great love to you all this day!
