No room for blame? 03.24.23  (Genesis 37:26-36)
by M. Clifford Brunner

No room for blame?

When things go wrong our thinking is more likely to turn to blame than accepting responsibility. Finding enough blame to cover everything negative in our lives can become a real obsession. After a time we can become quite good at it, even developing a technique for blame-shifting and responsibility transfer that is quite remarkable.      


Think about it. When we turn to self instead of others, we pull away from God rather than pulling toward Him.  

God’s Word tells us:  “The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more” (Genesis 37:26-36). 

Praise God that in love He seeks us out even when we have become self-seeking, not God-seeking in our dealings with others. When it comes to serving others before ourselves, what matters is the service we give to others, not why the service is needed. There is no room for blame in a life filled with love.


“Heavenly Father, we are surrounded by many rules that govern our lives. Some-time we chafe, and want to make our own choices. But, Lord, when it comes to eternal life we know there is only one choice–obedience to Your Word. Help us to play it safe. In Jesus name. Amen!”


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
