Adam and Eve played The Blame Game. There are consequences when we play this game. God had made Adam from the dust and his wife Eve from one of Adam’s ribs. Their life in the Garden of den was a paradise. But something happened to change the course of how they would live the rest of their lives as husband and wife.
What weakness do you think the serpent exploited as he convinced Eve to taste the forbidden fruit? Was it greed, hunger, unbelief, pride, selfishness, wanting to be like God.
Upon them disobeying God, when the Lord was calling Adam asking “where are you? He answered “I heard you in the garden and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.” God said who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?
Adam response “the woman you put here with me-she gave me fruit from the tree and I ate it. God said to Eve “what is this you have done”? She said the serpent deceived me and I ate.
Notice that both Adam and Eve both blame someone else instead of taking the responsibility for themselves. In many marriages, today we still have couples with the same mindset that Adam and Eve displayed. When it comes to handling problems, we shouldn’t play the blame game with our spouses. We need to address to our spouse how we feel about the matter at hand instead of taking matters into our own hands and making a mess of it.
Because of what they did the Lord dealt with them both, notice how God corrects? When Adam blamed God by saying the woman, you gave me and Eve she blamed the serpent. No matter how bad we mess up we need to be honest by making ourselves accountable for our actions. Some people view how the Lord handled it by saying God should have only dealt with Eve for she disobeyed her husband.
God dealt with both for they played the blame game, so today spouses be careful of playing games, for God holds each partner accountable in marriage, not just one but both of you. AMEN
Food4hought, Let the world play the game you keep this game out of your marriage, otherwise it will destroy it if you continue to play it.
