Who's Got The Blame?

     Bad things happen to us all the time. There is no escaping them. The good news is that good thing happens to us too. But when something bad happens to us, we have two options. We can either sulk and blame God for everything, or we can ask God for help and try to fix the problem. A lot of times I have heard people say that everyone at some point in their lives has asked God why He would put them trough something like that. But that's not true at all.

     One of my favorite books in the Bible is Job. It starts out with Job having everything. He had ten kids, 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female servants, and several servants. Not only did he have all of this, but he also feared God as you can see in verse one. But if you continue reading you can see that he looses everything all at once. His children, animals, and servants were all gone. But if you look in verse twenty-two it says, "In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong." So no matter what people tell you, not everyone has charged God with wrong. Nor should we. God will never give us anything we can't handle If you look in 1 Corinthians 10:13 it says, "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."

     So when things go wrong, we don't have to blame God. In fact we should do just the opposite and ask Him for help. We don't have to blame God for everything.
