Judges 15:18-19 & Proverbs 18:24 We live in a culture where we want to blame our problems on everyone else. Whether it’s our personal problems, relationships problems, the economy, job performance, grades, or many other things, we don’t want to take responsibility for anything. It’s always someone else’s fault. More often than not, though, it’s our own fault. We are our own worst enemy because we bring about many of the problems in our life onto ourselves. This is how Samson was in the Bible. God gave him gift after gift, but He kept causing problems for himself in his life. Samson was his own worst enemy. Like Samson, we are our own worst spiritual enemy because we take the gifts that God gives us in our lives and we mess them up. While we are our own worst enemy, God is our greatest friend. He is always there for us, and He will always stick by us. He’s ready to forgive us at all times, and He’s always ready to help us find our passion and purpose. God wants to bless our lives, but we, so often, mess it up and try to blame it on Him or somebody else. What gifts have God given you that you’ve been messing up? How can you begin to enjoy and use them the way God meant for you to? READ THROUGH THE NEW TESTAMENT Today’s Reading: Matthew 7]]>
