If you could kick the person most responsible for all your problems in the behind you wouldn’t be able to sit down for a long time. (J. Davis Illingworth, Sr, Presbyterian pastor)

Wow, that hurts, doesn’t it (pun intended). It’s human nature, it seems, to blame someone else for our problems. Adam and Eve did it: (“The woman … gave me some.” “The serpent deceived me.”) While many problems are beyond our control, we probably should admit that we are very likely responsible for most of them. So, let’s admit our faults and move on.

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other. (James 5:16).
