Even through our heartache and failures, God peppers our lives with humor and joy. He spices up the mix by providing us with embarrassing situations which bring us off our pedestals. He shows us His love when He gives us comfort during difficult times. He allows us to look at life with optimism and hope. He sometimes throws in some very funny things too, so we don’t take things so seriously. He handles the details of every day, by following His blueprint for our lives – a plan that was designed long before we even came to be.
Blaming Adam and Eve for our problems is like saying, “The devil made me do it.” Essentially, we are all responsible for our own actions. Once we accept that our imperfections are because of our own behavior, we don’t have to constantly explain ourselves or succumb to an existence of evil.
God knows our weaknesses and loves us in spite of them. Like a true Father, He wants us to come to Him when we make mistakes and ask for forgiveness. Why is that so hard for us to do? Because we want to be in charge – we want to be the one making the decisions – we, like Adam and Eve, think we know better than God, but we need Him.
It’s hard to say you’re sorry. It’s like saying you’re weak and vulnerable, but it is through our repentance that we receive forgiveness. It’s such an easy solution and yet many of us continue to resist it.
“LOVE MEANS SAYING YOU’RE SORRY.”
