You Reap What You Sow
When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. James 1:13-14, New International Version
The Devil made me do it. Flip Wilson
No the Devil did not make you do it. He may have put the idea into your head, but he did not make you do it. You allowed an evil thought to take root and you reap its harvest. Jehovah did not make you steal from your employer (it does not matter if it is using the photocopying machine for your own use or embezzlement, it is still stealing). It does not matter if the cashier undercharged you for your groceries. You know it is wrong and the money will come out of the cashiers paycheck, not the companies. So, you stole from a cashier, who doesn’t make that much anyway and needs the money to feed her family. God is love. He does not do anything evil. It is your own greed and selfishness that caused you to make the wrong choices.
Now you must owe up to them and face the consequences of them. Now there is two ways of owing up to them. One is to try to blame everyone but yourself. Beware. You will reap what you sow and it will come back on you seven times seven when it does.
The other is by reconciling to whoever you did wrong to. Begin by reconciling with God with a sincere heart. Then ask Him to show you how to reconcile with the one you did wrong to. Although they may not forgive you, Jesus always will.
