Did God do something mean to you? Many people run around blaming God for all sorts of things, when in fact, they are to blame for their own situations. “Why would God do such a thing?” seems to be an all too common retaliation for the messes we get ourselves into. God has never, and will never do anything wrong–that’s our department every single time. And even if He does decide to let us “cook in our own stew,” His judgement will be just. Wouldn’t it be better to end the rationalization and face up to the guilt we own? That’s the first step in true healing.
“A man’s own folly ruins his life, yet his heart rages against the Lord.” Proverbs 19:3
