DEVOTION – July 19

“His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” ~ John 9:2
I watch mystery movies all the time.
Enjoying trying to figure out who the culprit is in order to stop whatever crime that is being committed.
The best detectives trust no one and point the finger of blame at any and every one involved.
That approach makes great detectives but terrible Christians.
It’s human nature to blame others when things go wrong. It all started with Adam.
There is a fallacy in believing that through blaming others the truth will be revealed. That kind of approach only works in the movies.
In today’s scripture we see the disciples question the fault of parents because of the child’s condition.
This same approach is prevalent in society today.
People pointing at the flaws of children of God blaming the Father for doing something wrong.
It wasn’t right then and it definitely isn’t right now.
Instead the focus should be on love. It is only through love that the sin nature that brought forth the wrong doing can be properly dealt with.
When we blame others it takes the spotlight of off the redeeming blood of Christ and focuses on the sin instead.
As long as we are made of flesh we will be subject to sin. There is not enough blame in the world to correct it.
But the love of Christ abounds it all. And it never runs out.
Let’s pray…
“Lord, when it comes to blaming others I am the worst. At times when I hear of wrongdoings I look to blame quicker than I look to pray. That just ain’t right. Help me to be quick to pray and slower to blame. People don’t need another finger pointing out their flaws, they need a helping hand to show them the love of Christ. I will extend it. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.”
