You Are Responsible

You are responsible for the choices you make.  Not your mom.  Not your dad.  Not your brother.  Not your sister.  Not your boss.  Not your neighbor.  Not your friend.

YOU are responsible.

Way back at the dawn of time, Adam tried to blame Eve for eating the apple, and Eve tried to blame the snake (cf. Genesis 3).  Guess what happened?  God cursed them both, and we’ve been suffering the consequences of that Fall ever since.

I wonder how things might have been different if both Adam and Eve had simply accepted responsibility for the choices they made?  What if they had owned up to their choices and repented right then and there?

People need to quit blaming other people for their problems.  When all is said and done, and you stand before your Maker, He’s not going to be at all concerned with what your mom, dad, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, the government, your boss, or anybody else in all the world did that caused you to make the choices you made.  He is only going to be concerned with the choices that you yourself made.

You are responsible.  You are accountable.  It is your choice to obey God or disobey God.  You will be the one that has to answer to the choices that you have made in this life.  You.  No one else.
