People always want someone to blame, (or something), always. You gotta blame something: hurt? You gotta blame something. Failure? More blame.
The problem here is that it has become a gut reaction as Christians; we blame Sin. Sin and Satan, not bad but often inaccurate.
Newsflash sometimes you only have yourself to blame sometimes people will blame even God. Wow what a shock – not really.
In divorced families blame continually runs rampant. It is like a cancer and is also what destroys families. Children especially, are vulnerable to blame due to a lack of communication or lack of knowledge. Because of blame, lies fester.
No wonder kids blame themselves.
The problem that I have with blame, aside from the obvious, is that it fixes nothing. Nothing is accomplished when you blame other people and nothing is accomplished when you blame God. All that it does is just make everybody feel bad and make everybody sad. So why bother? Why is it that we do this?
No-one wants to feel stupid, and above all – no-one wants to admit when they do wrong, This is something that goes back to the original sin, in Genesis.
Nobody wants to look bad – and mistakes tend to make you look bad. The thing is, as Christians, we shouldn’t be worrying about looking stupid.
God is bigger than the bogey man, if looking stupid is the bogey man.
The Bible tells us not to worry about what man thinks, and to not perform for man alone, but for God who sees all and into the hearts of man. The problem, in my opinion, comes with a lack of faith; and a lack of trust.
How can you trust that God will fix everything if you have no faith?
God hasn’t invited us to a party, but on a wild ride – if we crack under the slightest pressure and begin to blame everything on and off of planet earth, how are we supposed to be able to part the Red Sea?
