In this world, there are blame pushers and
responsibility takers. If you look through the
Bible, you will discover that blame pushers do
not usually end well. Read: Open Heavens 1st February 2018
Adam tried to push the
blame of eating the forbidden fruit on Eve and
ended up with a curse. Saul pushed the blame of disobedience on the people and the throne was taken from him. 1st Samuel 15:15 says:
“And Saul said, they have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly
Did you notice how Saul used ‘they’ when
referring to the bad done, and ‘we’ when
referring to the good done? Blame pushers take credit for the good and push the blame for the bad. Read: Open Heaven 2 February 2018
When you are given a responsibility, if by any means, there is a shortfall, you must take the blame for it as you were responsible for it.
Blame pushers don’t go far in life because God cannot trust them with sensitive assignment.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is the love of God flowing through you?
Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
Are you ready His service to do?
Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
Make me a channel of blessing today.
2. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Are you burdened for those that are lost?
Have you urged upon those who are straying
The Savior who does on the cross?
3. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is it a daily telling for Him?
Have you spoken the Word of salvation
To those who are dying in sin?
4. We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.
