So much is happening today. Seems most of it is bad. Because of this there is a lot of blaming and condemning going around today. The left condemns the right, and the right blames the left. This blame is now spilling out of the political arena into daily life. The teacher will blame the parents and the parents will blame the school system. The poor blame the rich and the rich condemn the poor. Is it the “Baby Boomers” fault? Is the” Generation X or W” just lazy? And the “Millennials”, what are they thinking? We can go on and on in this blame game. There is enough of the blame game going on today to make it an Olympic sport. Being the loudest complainer will not fix anything.
The one place you will find no condemnation is in Christ. (Romans 8:1-2) There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. Jesus is the one place that we can all run too in our time of difficulty and not feel shame. If you choose to run to Christ, rest assured that He is loving, and forgiving, and His love never fails. Be responsible for your actions and not someone else’s. Your salvation is up to you.
If you are looking for a miracle, a new life, a change of style, or just something different that will bring you into the vision of the life you want, look at (1 John 3:21-22) Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.
Stop the blame game and seek the blessings of the Lord. In regard to the political arena, we have a vote. The Lord’s plan for you is greater than your imagination and there is “No Condemnation” for those who seek the Heavenly Fathers plan for their life.
