With all the life changes that have happened recently (AND the ones coming up), there have been so many times I've fallen into the trap of 'blaming' others for things that have happened. That's just plain a cop out. As soon as I put blame on others and take no responsibility for myself, I become a puppet and we all know that no one is or was ever intended to be that way. I guess maybe ya'll would have to be in my head this morning to understand this, but the reading for today pretty much nailed me flat and redirected my thinking in some areas.
The faults I see in others' lives
are often true of me;
So help me, Lord, to recognize
my own hypocrisy.
