The Blame Game

Ever since the garden of Eden when the 1st sin on earth was committed, satan and human pride has enticed mankind to not take responsibility for their own sin. Just blame someone else as Eve did, “the serpent made me do it.” Or like Adam did, “God it’s the woman You gave me’s fault.”

I wonder what the outcome of the 1st sin on earth would have lead to if they had only said like David said in Psalm 51, “I have sinned.”

Psalm 51:3-4 KJVS
For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. [4] Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

In todays Love Language Devotional reading the advice given is summed up in this. “Stop pointing the finger blaming others even if they are 95% to blame. Take responsibility for your 5%.”

Love Language Devotional for July 21 – Wisdom for Wives (And husbands if I might add, really everyone!!!)

Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. . . . When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness.Proverbs 31:10-12, 26
What’s a wife to do when her husband refuses to “get with the program”? You have asked him again and again to change. You’ve told him exactly what you want, but he doesn’t budge. So what are you to do?

Let me suggest that you take a different approach. Since he isn’t changing, start with yourself. Look carefully at your own behavior and ask yourself, What have I been doing that I should not be doing? What have I been saying that I should not be saying? Your answers may include trying to control him, speaking unkindly, or harboring bitterness. Once you’ve identified them, confess these things to God and then to your husband. Even if your husband is 95 percent of the problem, the place for you to start is with your 5 percent. After all, you can change that, and when you do, your marriage will be 5 percent better.

Consider this approach from a wife who tends to treat her husband like hired help: “It was unfair of me to ask you to get rid of that tree stump right after you mowed the lawn. I know I’ve piled tasks on you before, and I’m sorry. I want you to know that I appreciate the work you did this morning.” Whatever his initial response, she has just changed the climate of her marriage.

Strive to be a wife who, like the famous “Proverbs 31 woman,” speaks wisely, kindly, and brings good to her husband.

Heavenly Father, please forgive me for the wrong things I have done in my marriage. I sometimes get frustrated with my husband’s actions, but I forget that I contribute to the problems in our relationship as well. Please help me to admit my part and start by changing myself. May I bring good to my husband.

Today’s Tecarta devotional reading touches on the subject of self centeredness and the destruction it brings too,

WisdomWhen we get caught up in catering to our addiction, it is almost like we are two different people—as if there are two of us tied up together. The Bible recognizes this dual nature in each of us. One part yearns for good, and the other part is drawn toward corrupt desires and animal passions. The Bible describes a kind of “worldly” wisdom that justifies…
The whole devotional reading is here,

The “Blame Game” is leading our world to destruction. It’s happening right before our eyes. God told us in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that if “His people” would repent, turn from their wicked ways, then He would hear, forgive their sin, then heal their land. Today most of the focus is spent trying to get everyone else to agree with our world view. When they don’t they’re automatically wrong in our eyes.

The only Eyes that matter are God’s Eyes. I have been thinking lately that just maybe He is feeling like He did back in Noah’s day. Yes!!! God has feelings too!!!

Genesis 6:5-7 KJVS
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. [6] And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. [7] And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

Call on Jesus “God” to empower you to overcome things that are not pleasing to Him. Done in our own power, strength and “pride” these accomplishments are nothing but “filthy rags” in His sight. Jesus was there in the garden and saw it all and still sees it all, even the things we think are hidden in our heart. Today’s scripture of the day from MyDailyBible app affirms that, #Bible

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”” (Revelation 1:8 NKJV)

Jesus Is The Aleph & The Tav, The Alpha & The Omega, The First & The Last

John 3:1-3  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Colossians 1:13-18  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
