Who is to blame for the state of the world?
Who is to blame for its decline?
Who is to blame for injustice, hatred, and violence?
Who is to blame, you ask?
I AM! ….I am to blame
When I say nothing in the face of discrimination…I am to blame
When I disregard people being oppressed …I am to blame
When I ignore hateful expressions and biased attitudes…I am to blame
When children are exploited and enslaved and I don’t see it as my problem…I am to blame
When I stick my head in the sand and refuse to see the truth…I am to blame
When I fail to model good character in front of my children…I am to blame
When my sinful habits hurt others and I do nothing…I am to blame
When I fail to forgive others because I want them to hurt…I am to blame
When I care more for my own wealth and happiness than I do anyone else’s…I am to blame
When I place myself in the center of all things…I am to blame
“I know that there is nothing good housed inside me---that is, inside my old nature.
I can want what is good, but I can’t do it! What a miserable creature I am!
Who will rescue me from this body bound for death?
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Rom 7:18, 24-25 CJB)
When a heart fills with gratitude for the Savior of our souls, a process begins that reshapes our lives.
This redirection of the heart can help us change the way we view people.
Though we can still choose to ignore the problems, we can also decide to become part of the solution.
The choice is ours.
Giving your heart to others by listening to their heart
When you grow a leader who values people you help the whole world
