One of the most hurtful attitudes we can adopt is blaming others for our own mistakes. This isn’t something new, of course. Think about Adam. When God approached him after he’d sinned, this is what he said: “The woman you put here with me–she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” Adam blamed his wife for his poor choice and he also blamed God for giving him Eve. In his mind, he was just a victim.
That attitude does not help in moving forward. And this applies in the same way for you and me. If we adopt a “victim” mindset, whether that be a victim of the system, the government or our own spouse, we won’t allow the change that needs to take place inside of us. We all want to change the world, so let’s start with the person we see in the mirror.
Starting today we must stop blaming others for what happens in our life. We are responsible for 100% of our “actions”. Stop blaming your parents, your teachers, and even those who have hurt you.
“For I acknowledge my transgressions, And my sin is always before me. Against You, You only, have I sinned, And done this evil in Your sight— That You may be found just when You speak, And blameless when You judge.”
Psalms 51:3-4 NKJV
