ARE YOU ALSO PLAYING THE BLAME GAME?
Have you ever met anybody from your country complaining of why the nation is not working? Hey, could that person be you? I personally have fallen victim to this line of reasoning for a considerable amount of time in my life.
As years go by though, I discovered that as in many other things, I had simply fallen victim of my environment. I saw people around me blame the nation and everything else that is wrong in the country, on one person or the other and I simply joined them. I heard them talk about it, I witnessed them playing the blame game, and I joined them, on and on it went.
“When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” 1cor 13:11
However thank God for understanding, thank God for insight, thank God for education. After getting myself relatively educated in the area of National Transformation, I have come to discover that it makes better sense to look at what I could do to fix the problem of the society, rather than blaming others for what is wrong in the country.
As a matter of fact I never seriously thought about the word responsibility until I was doing my masters in the university. I was fortunate to listen to a man address the issue of men’s responsibility. The word seems so common and popular that I never thought it needed much attention, but the more I studied it the more I discovered, hey! Wait a minute, I never really knew anything about the true meaning of the word. At least my life style did not show any form of responsibility for the nation where I was born or the nation where I lived.
To be continued tomorrow with the following points:
- Personal responsibility – one of the most important factors in national transformation
- The question of a truly responsible person.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, CHURCH AND NATION
