The Blame Game

Matt Richards

Job 36:13 Angry people without God pile grievance upon grievance, always blaming others for their troubles.

The Amplified says: 'heaps up anger', the NIV says: 'harbour anger', ESV says: 'cherish anger.'

You know I don't want to cherish, heap up, or harbour anger.

Some people feel that they have a right to be angry, but in fact they cherish it, they love it. Others are like a ship that is looking for a place to stay, they choose to harbour it.

In a world of problems, prejudices, and injustices it's easy to pile up grievances.

It's easy to choose to be offended to have a grievance, it really is.

It's so easy to blame others too.

Blame my past, blame my employer, blame the government, blame church,

and everybody else that's ever been involved with us; even blame God.

I don't want to play the blame game. I don't want to cherish, to harbour anger or resentment.

I want to forgive, I want to cast my cares on the Lord. I want to take responsibility for my emotions. I want to cry out to God for help.

No matter how stressed don't play the blame game.


Father forgive me for harbouring anger. I choose to forgive. I choose to cast my cares on You. Help me today with my emotions in Jesus' name Amen.
