On Accepting the Blame

As a big picture person, blame to me is rather a waste of time. However, being surrounded by detail oriented people, blame is a hot topic in this house. Whose fault is it? Who is to blame? To me, it happened, fix it. Try not to do it again. They love my forgiving nature (I just don’t major on the minors really lol) until I am to blame. Then I am the scum of the earth when I make a mess and must be reminded of it daily or hourly until something else happens more worth their attention. This is an Aquarian living with three Libras and a nearby Libra mom. Such is life, but I have learned a valuable lesson from this unfortunate circumstance. It is most often better to accept the blame immediately and clean it up the best I can than to instill my life philosophy of nonjudgment and full forgiveness upon those who struggle with that concept. In other words, it is better to be humble than to be correct. It is better to promote peace by any means necessary than to foster a stumbling block for someone else in my correctness. Lol Life is a pickle. No good if you suck on it but brilliant if you bite in. ❤

Colossians 5:2-6

Colossians 4:2. “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. 3. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. 4. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. 5. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. 6. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”

Colossians 3:18-22, 23-25

Rarely is a verse taken out if context as much as tgis one and rarely is a verse misused as an excuse to do evil as this one. But in its purest intended sense, we are to treat each other with the same love and respect we owe the Lord, for everything we do or don’t do (and are held accountable for later), we are working for tge Lord as an act of love and worship. 

Colossians 3:18. “Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. 20. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. 21. Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged. 23. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24. since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 25. Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.”
