Blaming Someone Else!

Genesis 3:12,13 (New International Version)

12 The man said, "The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it."
13 Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate.

Oh my, right from the beginning! It was "her" fault, it was the serpents fault! I wouldn't have done it, if it hadn't been for ________. Does this sound familiar? It sure does to me, adults blaming each other for actions taken they chose. When do we take responsibility for our actions? What happens if we don't "own up to it"? This age old problem exists today and will always exist. Even as children we are told to tell the truth no matter what, and of course there is punishment if we don't. I remember the one and only spanking I received from my dad. I was about 7 and my sister was 5 and we were arguing about something, so I just tore her little purse. So she runs and tells (the little tattletail), Dad asks if it was true, and I politely said, "no, I didn't do it", then when I saw that wasn't going to work, I told him it was her fault. Now I don't need to tell you what happened next! Anyway you kind of expect this from children, but adults? I am thinking something is wrong with this picture. How do we mature in our Christian walk if we are not accountable for what we do? So much is involved when we try to blame our circumstances on someone else. Lets examine our heart and the scripture, and find out what God has to say about this. I believe the bottom line is, we are responsible for our own actions, not someone else!
