for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.
The oldest story ever told that I’m sure every Christian knows is the story of how men fell into sin. When both Adam and Eve, ate the forbidden fruit and the Lord found out and kicked them out of the garden as a result. In that story, Adam blamed his mistake to Eve and she blamed it on to the serpent. Even though they both lied, God knew the truth and still threw them out anyway. Stories like this are repeated over and over again in the Bible and even in our history. Its so much easier to blame our mistakes on other people, without us taking responsibility of what we did. But God likes honest people, and owing up to your mistakes requires you to be honest and to be responsible, because usually when we fess up to doing wrong, there are consequences.
“Lord, teach me to be responsible, to have the dignity to owe up to my mistakes. Lord, correct me in my wrong doings and don’t let my ego get in the way. I pray that You give me the right path to correct my wrong actions and that I take responsibility for my own actions, because I know that is the way to become more and more like You. In Your Name, I pray. Amen.”
