“…We are ULTIMATELY responsible for ourselves, we cannot pass the buck….”


Before you start moaning and groaning about your status in life….STOP!  Think for a moment… How did you get to where you are?  The government says you didn’t do it all by yourself. What?  Then who is responsible?  What “they” imply…is…that the government helped you…and me to get to where we are.  What a crock that is.  It’s because of the government interference that we have 47% of the population on some sort of entitlement.   I’m getting off the subject here…. SORRY.  What I want to impart, rather, is this:  We are where we are because we “put ourselves” there.  We are ULTIMATELY responsible for ourselves, we cannot pass the buck.  Luke 12:48 But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.  Let us not forget, though, we are God’s personal design…we were made in His image. Ephesians 2:10 tells us – “For we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in them. With all of that said, we are still held accountable for taking the “gifts” that God has imparted to us, and use them to the best of our ability, that which we are holding “in-trust,” so, if we flounder around, and “miss-use” those gifts, and fail in in our stewardship…then yes, we’re held accountable.  Lesson learned:  Do not mock God. ……Blessings… cjlb… 9/25/14
