Joshua 24:15 (ESV)
And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
Have you ever placed the blame on someone else for something that you did?
One of the hardest things to do in life is to take responsibility for your actions. Its so much easier to blame someone else or your circumstances for where you’re at in life. However, its when you begin to take responsibility for your actions that you begin to really become a person of character.
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt
So I encourage you to take responsibility for your actions. It’s not always fun, but it will help you grow into a person of character. In the end, you’re the person responsible for where you are in life and your relationship with God. You have to choose.
When it’s all said and done, it’s really up to you to choose your actions. It’s up to you whether you serve God or not. It’s up to you how far you go in life. So choose to make wise decisions and run after God. In the end, you’ll grow and become a person of character.
Dear Lord, help us to take responsibility for the things that we do and not blame others. Help us to choose this day who we will serve. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
