Things rejected by wisdom and spirituality :those who don’t take responsibility

And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?( Genesis 27:36)

Shifting blame or responsibility to someone else is the easiest thing to do, many people will tell you what others did or didn’t do as the reason why they have not progressed.

And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:( Genesi 3:13-14)

Even Adam didn’t take responsibility for eating the fruit which God told them not to eat. Apostle Johnson Suleman once said that “you are not a failure until you have whom to blame.” And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.( Genesis 3:12)

One of the reasons why Saul lost the throne is because he never took responsibility for his actions but instead blamed it on the impatience of his men whereas David owned his mistakes, admitted guilt and repented.

And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.( 1 Samuel 15:24)

And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the Lord. And Nathan said unto David, The Lord also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.( 2 Samuel 12:13)

The first step in receiving Christ is to accept that you are a sinner, in others words you take responsibility for your actions, If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness( 1 John 1:9 ). Hence if you are born again you have to be responsible. You need to stop blaming your parents, relatives, the government and take responsibility for your life. That your parents are poor is not the reason why you are failing because others whose parents were poor have become successful.
