You’re Blaming Who?

Blaming is almost as old as time. Eve blamed the serpent, Adam blamed Eve, and it has continued ever since. I’ve noticed that two get more blame or credit for things than they should – God and the devil. 

People often blame God for telling them to do something. God does speak to people by His Holy Spirit and through Scripture, but He is not going to tell you to sin. The book of James says that God does not tempt us with evil. Be careful what you say God did.

I also find that the devil gets more credit than he should. People do stupid things which lead to stupid consequences, and then they say that they’re being attacked by the devil when they reap what they sow. Pardon my English, but that ain’t right!

Your consequences stem from your poor choices. Don’t play on everyone’s sympathy. Admit to God that you messed up, repent (don’t do it again), and learn the lessons from your poor choices.

You might be reading this, and you have a messed up view of God or the devil. God leads you down a path that is right (not always easy but what is best for you). The devil will tempt you into thinking that a certain path is good for you, only for you to find out that you have a lot of cleaning up to do.

In a victim generation, rise up and take responsibility for your actions. In doing that, you will save yourself and everyone around you some unnecessary drama.

  1. You make good points. One thing I like to remember about blame, who ever takes the blame, picks up the power. So when we take responsibility ourselves, we hold all the cards and can fix it. When we blame someone else, they hold all the power. When it comes to the enemy, the last thing you want to do is hand him more power.
