Man is inclined, when he is wrong, to lay the blame on someone else. He is like the small boy who was standing on the cat’s tail. The mother, hearing the terrible outburst from the cat, called from the next room, “Tommy, stop pulling the cat’s tail!” Tommy yelled back, “I’m not pulling the cat’s tail – I’m standing on it. He’s doing the pulling.”
Is this not what Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden in Genesis 3:12-13? Adam blamed the woman for his sin and Eve blamed the serpent for her transgression.
Many in the Lord’s church have the “it’s not my fault” mentality. They either make excuses or blame something or someone else for their sins, shortcomings, failures to do well, or failures to attend worship services. Friends, it is time to take an honest look at our selves, and own up to our responsibilities. In the Day of Judgment we will responsible for our own actions of lack thereof. “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil” (2 Cor. 5:10).
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
