We needn’t carry all the shame
Or find a place to put the blame
Poor choices and mistakes
Are what He came from us to take
If we won’t learn to grow through pain
His gift to us remains in vain

“The woman You gave me…” Adam’s blaming God here. We are called to a life of other centeredness; it’s too bad we apply this concept to pointing out sin. It’s okay to move to the front of the line when the topic is shortcomings and weaknesses. Thank You for Your forgiveness Lord, thank You for Your Grace.

We are sometimes to blame for allowing others to use and manipulate us. It can happen when we let the love, acceptance and approval of others take the place of God’s love and acceptance. Looking for these things from those around us will always fall short, only the one who made us is capable of the love we really need.
