STOP AND THINK – Almost all unhappiness in life comes from the tendency to blame someone else. (Brian Tracey, motivational speaker and author)

It started way back in the beginning. Adam’s excuse to God for his sin was, “The woman … she gave me …” And Eve said, “The serpent deceived me.” Not much has changed over these millennia has it? We’re still blaming others for our mistakes, but until we’re ready to take responsibility for our own actions and be accountable, we’ll never be happy.

Now we know . . . that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. (Romans 3:19)
