One day you’re going to have to be a responsible adult.” The words of my mother still ring in my head today. She was right. Responsibility is something that evades many in our society. There are plenty of Adams out there. Blame passers. Deflectors of responsibility. People who would rather tell God it’s someone else’s fault they’re in the state they find themselves in.
Adam, stand up. Take responsibility for that bad financial decision. Take responsibility for that missed opportunity. Take responsibility for the words you spoke causing another heartache. In doing so, relationship with God is restored. In doing so, it matures you in ways you’d never imagine.
“The man said, ‘The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate” (Genesis 3:12)
