Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“The man said, The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat” (Gen 3:12).

Sin makes a person blame others for one’s own mistakes. Adam here blames the woman for his sin. Every soul is responsible for his own sin. Adam might have eaten of the tree from the hands of the woman, in order to please her and show her his love for her. But now, instead of showing love, he shows only hatred by blaming her for his sin.

Adam also blames God. ‘THE WOMAN WHOM THOU GAVEST.’ In effect, he was saying, “O God, it was Your mistake. If You hadn’t given me this woman I wouldn’t have sinned.”

And when God gives the woman a chance to repent, she blames the serpent (Gen 3:13). True, the serpent did deceive her, but why did she give the fruit to her husband? The serpent didn’t tell her to give it to him, did it?

Sin always finds some excuse. But remember, child of God, whatever your excuse, it will not hold good in the presence of God. You cannot put the blame for your wrongdoings on someone else and get away with it. Be sure your sin will find you out. “The soul that sinneth, it shall die.”
