“The woman you put here with me – she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” That was Adam’s answer to God’s enquiry concerning His commandment that he should not eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
As descendants of Adam and Eve, we still love to ‘pass the buck.’ When we find ourselves in a bad situation, many would rather point accusing fingers at other people than owning up to their faults. We blame our parents and our teachers in school for our failure. We blame either the referee or the coach when we lose a match. We blame our family members and friends for our poverty and we blame God for an unfulfilled life. God will, however, not accept any excuse for our failure to obey His commandments. There are consequences for all wrongdoings. The sin of Adam and Eve brought separation between God and man and dire consequences for our earthly sojourn.
King Saul also gave excuses when he was queried by Samuel for performing burnt offering to God instead of waiting for the prophet (1 Sam. 13: 11 – 12). David on the other hand did not give any excuse for his adultery with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband, Uriah. He admitted his guilt and God forgave him.
We move ahead in life to accomplish God’s will for our lives when we own up to our mistakes and take corrective measures. There is no excuse why you should not go back to school, start a new business, forgive those who have offended you, and most importantly, praise and worship God at all times and in all situations.
1 Samuel 15: 22 “But Samuel replied: Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice and to heed is better than the fat of rams.”
Lord, give me courage to always own up my wrongs and to truly ask for forgiveness rather than blaming others in Jesus’ name I ask. Amen.
