It is the madness of the man who perverts his way, but it is against the Lord that his heart is angry. (Proverbs 19: 3)
God has given us free will, and we have the freedom to CHOOSE the direction we want our lives to take. From Genesis to Revelation, the Word of God teaches us about the notions of freedom and responsibility and urges us to make the right choices.
Today I call heaven and earth to witness against you: I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life, so that you and your posterity may live. (Deuteronomy 30:19)
Irresponsibility, a serious problem in our generation
Many people make bad choices, are irresponsible in their daily conduct, but then blame God when the consequences occur ...
Many people make senseless choices in their relationships, in their financial management, or in their life in general and once the consequences happen (unwanted pregnancies, chronic indebtedness, chronic unemployment, divorce, prison ...), they cry to God for him to come clean their "bazaar". Then they end up getting angry with God and become bitter when they realize that God does not prevent the consequences; It leaves us face the consequences of our choices, so that it causes a change in us.
Make no mistake: we do not make fun of God. What a man has sown, he will also reap. (Galatians 6: 7)
They are people who refuse to take responsibility, who tend to blame themselves for their happiness, their well-being or their social success, their mistakes on others, and to blame all sorts of things when things go wrong not in their life: wife, husband, children, family, boss, political system, God ...
It's irresponsibility. It's immaturity. That's expensive. It's wasting a lot of time ...
It is the MADNESS OF THE MAN who perverts his way ... This neither God, nor the others, nor the system! Click to tweet
I pray that God gives us grace to become aware of the responsibility that He has given us by granting us free will, and that He gives us wisdom!
Stop blaming others
The truth is that blaming others is giving up the ability God has given us to influence the path of our lives through the choices we make today. To blame others is to give up growing up. It's giving up to mature. It's giving up to change.
And as long as there is no change in us, there will be no change in our life. This is revealed to us 3 John 1: 2.
Beloved, I wish you prosper in all respects and be in good health, as prosperous the state of your soul. (3 John 1: 2)
Many Christians pray pray pray and are irresponsible. Beloved, prayer serves you no good, if you invalidate it with bad choices (ie choices that do not accord with the Word of God).
Blaming others prevents us from seeing ourselves as we are, and from discerning the things that must fit in us to change our lives.
It's from the moment we stop blaming others, and where we take responsibility, that we really experience change in our lives and relationships for the better. Amen?
May God help us !
