The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” – Gen 3:12
Passing blame. A game we have been playing for centuries. When I am busted for my actions, it is always the fault of someone else. My parents raised me that way, everybody is doing it, I had no choice, my teacher doesn’t like me, blah, blah, blah.
Take responsibility for your actions.
If a ruler’s anger rises against you, do not leave your post; calmness can lay great errors to rest. – Eyck 10:4
Suck it up. Admit fault. Ask forgiveness. Make the change.
We are responsible for our own actions.
