Let’s not blame people, things, or places
Many times, we quickly blame others when bad things happen to us. We even blame the weather or something else, but rarely ourselves. We make excuses because we pretend it’s not or at least, partly our fault.
This mindset of “blaming others” gets passed down to the next generation who takes on the “entitlement mentality” and “victimhood,” instead of assuming personal responsibility. This unfortunate attitude is rooted in pride.
The Apostle Paul said, “…For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:9-10)
Whatever a man sows, this he will also reap
We’re mostly responsible for it
Most of the problems we face are the consequences of our irresponsible actions. Face it instead of pointing fingers. Do not be deceived; God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. (Galatians 6:7)
We’re all accountable
Let’s not use other people as an excuse. We can blame others and even quote scriptures to justify our failures, but never see the log in our own eyes (Matthew 7:3). Remember, a day of accounting will come. Each one of us will have to stand before the Lord for what we have and have not done.
→ Bible verses for accountability and why we need it.
Stop blaming others. Keep your conscience clear, and when people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ. (1 Peter 3:16)
