Bible Quotes

A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed. The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouths of fools feed on folly.
(Proverbs 15:13,14) ESV 

Yet let no one contend, and let none accuse, for with you is my contention, O priest.
(Hosea 4:4) ESV 

Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
(Matthew 7:3-5) ESV 

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; ...
(1 Corinthians 13:1-13) ESV

Blame and the Bible

When things happen or when we do something wrong, we like to blame the other guy, or do we blame God? Matthew 7:3 reads: "And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?"

We tend to blame others so that we do not look bad. In Matthew 7:5 Jesus says, "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." When it comes time to accept the blame don't try to shift the blame over to someone else.

Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is a classic example of pointing the finger at the other person. Genesis 3:9-13 tells us this: "And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And 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."

Let's look at verse 12 again, "the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat." Looks like Adam is trying to shift the blame onto one other besides the woman. Adam says, "The woman whom thou gavest to be with me." It's almost like he's saying, "You know God it's partly your fault because you gave me this woman."

Continuing on to verse 13 we find: "And 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." Now it's her turn to point the finger as if to say, "Hey God the creepy little creature tricked me so don't go getting on me." Wow! What an example of shifting the blame.

Are we just trying to cover our sin by blaming others to make ourselves look good? In Genesis chapter 4, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and slayed him. In verse 9 God asks, "And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?"

In the Matthew Henry Commentary it poses the idea that God asks Cain the question that He may draw a confession out of him. Cain endeavors to cover his sin from God. Here Cain is trying to put the blame on God. He's basically telling God, "Hey, are you not his keeper?" Remember now, in verse 9 Cain poses the questions, "Am I my brother's keeper? Basically telling God that if he's missing then the blame is on you. Cain is cold and uncaring. Those who like to point the finger at others and not look at themselves speak the common language of Cain. Proverbs 28:13 says, "He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy."5
