Since the very first humans were upon the Earth, blaming others has been the norm.
Adam: "It was the woman, she gave it to me."
Eve: "The serpent told me to."
All throughout the Word of God, we can find people putting the blame on others instead of just owning up to the bad decision they made.
I have done it and you have done it.
Satan hasn't made any of us do anything; we choose to do, or say, or write. When we decide to blame, we need only look in the mirror.
The Way I Was Raised
"It's the way my parents raised me."
This excuse is old and very sickening. If you realize that something your parents taught you is wrong, why not change it?
Just because your Mom or Dad abused you, does that mean you have the right to abuse your children? You know it is wrong, but you keep doing it. That reminds me of a quote that I have heard many times, the definition of insanity:
Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
Personally, I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I have been adopted by the perfect Father. Yes, I still have my Earthly parents, but no more blaming them. I surely cannot blame God when I do something wrong. The only one I can blame is the face looking back at me in the mirror.
Blaming has got to stop. Even blaming yourself can go overboard. How about just fixing the problem? Change the action and the reaction will change.
Stand Up and Praise God!
Yes, there will be attacks by the enemy. When things are not going right, instead of blaming, how about praying?
Try a new course of action and if the results are not satisfactory, try a different one.
If you feel as if I am preaching at you in this article, please don't. I am preaching to the Frog sitting in this chair typing this. I have had a load of bad things happen in life and I have blamed others. I have also blamed myself almost to the point of becoming suicidal.
Blaming is not the answer and is not of or from God. Changing the attitude and seeking God within is the answer. Jesus Christ is the answer. The Bible has all the answers. Prayer is the answer.
I am sharing this hub in the H.O.W. movement that my hubber friend billybuc started. It stands for Humanity One World.
Blaming is not the answer within this movement, fixing is the answer.
We can stand and blame and do nothing, or we can stand and look in the mirror and seek the answer to "How Can I Help?"
Blaming is for losers!
