Genesis 3:12 The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.” 13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

Since the beginning, accountability has been a problem for mankind. Adam blamed Eve for sinning against God and Eve blamed the serpent. They never owned up to their shortcoming because it was easier to blame someone else.

Still today, there are some who blame others for why they act a certain way, what they have or don’t have, or where they are in life. Blaming others won’t fix anything. It’s a cop-out. It temporarily takes the spotlight off of us and puts in on someone else.

The good news about applying our faith to God is He puts all of us on a level playing field. We may not have had a father growing up but with God, we can still be a success and a great parent to our children. We may not have had higher education but with God, we can be a CEO of our own company. We may not have a family yet but with God, we can still have joy and a purpose in life.

It’s time to stop blaming others for our shortcomings. Wherever you are today, begin to look to God for assistance, and He will bring you to prosperous places.
