Fear

Out of fear comes defensiveness.

When we get afraid ….we blame others.

Genesis 3:9-13  9And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

 10And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

 11And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

 12And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

 13And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

  What was the reaction of Adam to the question?  BLAME!!!!  Adam blamed the woman, the woman blamed the devil and this was the first time that blame was put on the devil and we’ve ran with it ever since!!  Why? Because we feel vindicated when we can put the blame on someone or something else, for our own decisions!  We don’t want to take the responsibility for our own actions!

We are AFRAID that if we say “Yes i did it, I am to blame” that we are then going to be BAD people. We can never be BAD if we take responsibilty for ourselves.

Wouldn’t that make us MATURE.
