Scripture for today

1 Samuel 15:24 AMPC
And Saul said to Samuel, I have sinned; for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord and your words, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice.

Have you ever done something that is totally wrong and you just did it to please others? Have you ever made a decision which you know is wrong but you did it anyway just to make the other person feel good? Have you ever been wrong about something but you refused to take the blame because it wasn't totally your fault? You know what friends, people who are always willing to blame others haven't started living yet. There is something about standing up to take responsibility for your actions and wrong doings. You know, what differentiated Saul from David is the fact that when David committed a sin he was willing to take responsibility for his actions and was willing to make changes. 

We all make mistakes friends but what is most important is that we shouldn't always pass the blame. We shouldn't always point at all the millions of people and reasons in the world and blame them. We need to learn the act of being responsible both in good and bad times. Saul was a blame pusher and a people pleaser. We find ourselves in such positions when we feel like our strength come from people. The moment we feel that God is our strength and our sustainer that moment is when things begin to change for us. 

Friends, let's learn from our mistakes and move on. Let's stop blaming people for the the wrong things they did and didn't do. Let's look up to God to transform our future.

Prayer: Father, help me look up to you alone.
