It was the woman you gave me who
brought me the fruit, and I ate it.
The blame game is as old as Adam and Eve. Adam blamed Eve for his failure; Eve blamed the snake for hers.
You have probably been blamed for some things that were your fault—and for some things that weren’t.
You may have blamed others for some things that were their fault—and for some things that weren’t.
The cold fact is that none of us is blameless: “There is no one righteous, not even one . . . all have sinned” (Rom 3:10, 23).
But the most amazing thing happened: the only blameless person in the history of the world stepped up and assumed our blame, our sin—and in him, we became righteous (2 Cor 5:16–21). Doesn’t that take your breath away?
We have a genius for finding something
or someone to blame for our mistakes.
