It’s just so easy to point fingers to other people and make excuses for our own mistakes or sin. “What he did was horrible but as for me, my main reason for doing such is different, “at least that’s the common explanation I could imagine we would say to other people.
Blame shifting will cause us to lose inner peace and joy, it will also cause a deep sense of guilt to manifest within; it is simply an awful feeling.
When we disobey God, let’s not shift the blame and justify our actions with excuses. Let’s take full responsibility for the mistakes, say that we are sorry and confess our sins to a merciful and forgiving God. HE will not condemn nor see you less.
So then each of us will give an account of himself to God. Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.
