Genesis 12:1-9, Ps.33, Matt 7:1-5

Who is to blame?

Today it always seems necessary, to find someone to blame. Even a burglary can be blamed on the victim for making it too easy to accomplish! I have an accident – that hole in the road shouldn’t have been there. My child falls in a playground – the council must be at fault. What has happened to individual responsibility? Judging other people is easy but it’s hard to look inside myself and admit my own weakness and sinfulness. It isn’t easy or comfortable, I need God’s help if I am to peel away the layers of self-deception and self-justification.
