– And the man said, The woman whom You gave to be with me she gave me [fruit] from the tree, and I ate. And the Lord God said to the woman, What is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled (cheated, outwitted, and deceived) me, and I ate-
This is another Story that Joyce Meyer reads at her conferences.
I like this one because, it gives a great representation of…
‘The Blame Game.’
Here’s the Story…
This is a story about Four People named, Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.
There was an important job to do and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.
Anybody could’ve done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job.
You See, Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it!
It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody, when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.
You Know the Blame Game originated in the Garden of Eden.
Eve blamed the Serpent for beguiling her…Adam blamed Eve for sharing the forbidden fruit with him…And Adam even blamed God for making the Woman and giving her to him…Lol!!
You see, Adam and Eve Were placed in the Garden with a job to do:
-And God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of God and man]; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth.
So Just like the Four People in today’s story…
Adam Had a Job to do- But, he did’t do it!!
Eve had a job to do- but, she didn’t do it!!
When they failed to do their jobs, following God’s orders – his commands – they blamed one another and even blamed God!!
And the Blame Game Continued from there…
This Week We are going to Discuss some ‘Finger Pointing’ Characters from the Bible…and How they refused to accept responsibility for their own Faith-Failures…On-the-Job.
Tomorrow, We will Discuss the Failures of King Saul…and identify on Who, What, and Where…Saul pointed his finger…placing the blame for his Failure as King of Israel!
