STOP AND THINK – Almost all unhappiness in life comes from the tendency to blame someone else. (Brian Tracey, personal development author and speaker)
Blaming others for our wrong doing is nothing new. It happened way back in the beginning, when the human couple blamed a serpent and each other for their disobedience to the Creator God. Taking personal responsibility for our actions is an essential step in achieving worthy goals and establishing good relationships.
God: “What is this you have done?” Eve: “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” (Genesis 3:13). Contrast David: “Have mercy on me, Lord; heal me, for I have sinned against you.” (Psalm 41:4)
