Look to Christ for answers, not blame

It seems that man today is always looking for someone to blame. Children blame one another when they get in trouble for something. Husbands and wives blame each other when problems arise. Countries blame each other for difficulties, and on and on it goes.

God is there when others are not

"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for as much as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord." - I Corinthians 15:55-58

God gives us this license when it comes to earthly things. Some drive Fords, others drive Chevrolets; the choice is up to the individual.
