May the word of the Lord fill you with love and bring you peace.

After the man, Adam, had eaten of the tree, the LORD God called to the man and asked him, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard you in the garden; but I was afraid, because I was naked, so I hid myself.” Then he asked, “Who told you that you were naked? You have eaten, then, from the tree of which I had forbidden you to eat!” The man replied, “The woman whom you put here with me—she gave me fruit from the tree, and so I ate it.” The LORD God then asked the woman, “Why did you do such a thing?” The woman answered, “The serpent tricked me into it, so I ate it.”

Then the LORD God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, you shall be banned from all the animals and from all the wild creatures; on your belly shall you crawl, and dirt shall you eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike at your head, while you strike at his heel.”

From the very beginning of creation, we have denied our fault in whenever we did anything wrong. It continues today – whatever is wrong in this world is someone else’s fault! Do you take responsibility for what you do – right or wrong? Being upright and honest is not hard, it just takes practice and a willingness to take responsibility for what you do, especially when you do wrong. What do you do?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to always stand up and own what I do, right or wrong, and forgive me when I do wrong. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen!

With the Lord there is mercy, and fullness of redemption.
